She'll be gray. MAYBE silver bay? You can tell by the gray around her eyes, and also the color change you can see in her tail. Her body hair is turning gray, as well. If that's her dam in the pic, gray horses *usually* have gray foals. I speak from experience, not science haha

100% without a doubt, grey. The color around the eyes, the color on the ears, the darker leg color, all SCREAM of a grey baby ;)

Grey horses always start out pretty dark; usually bay, or black-ish, in color, but sometimes the more dark chestnut color as your baby is exhibiting. As a horse ages more and more white coat comes in, replacing the darker coat.
