^^ The first time they shed, they can be much darker than their true color, so I'm not so sure about dark palomino. But who knows? Horses and their colors are absolute mysteries x)

What i've seen and noticed that if it was going to be a chocolate palomino he would start out looking sorrel even the mane and tail and within 2-6 months it would lighten up and look palomino. But what color is the foal's dam?

Chocolate palominos are actually usually a bay or black horse with the silver gene. Or they could also be a sooty palomino.

Mom is grey, I'll post a pic that shows more of her body. She's only a coming 4 yro, so still rather dark grey. This is her first foal.
As I said the stallion was buckskin. From the foals I actually SAW of his, he had a palomino filly out of a light grey mare, another palomino filly out of a bay overo mare, a buckskin filly out of a black mare, a rather mousy/grulla/buckskin? Colored filly out of a dark bay tobiano mare. And one other I didn't get a good luck at, but I think she was sorrel out of a sorrel/white mare. I *think* there was a bay tobiano what was his as well out of a bay tobiano. I also know someone here has a dark bay yearling by him, I've seen his pictures here "spud", I just can't remember which member owns him.

She's definitely a palomino.

And she is definitely a CUTIE!

I was in the same boat. I have a filly from a gray mare who was bred to a buckskin.
Here is the mother and the filly:

This is when I brought the filly home: (notice the dark chocolate color on her legs..this is what I think your colt is shedding out to now.)

Here she is this summer:

Horseluver: is this him? Spud the bay/brown Appaloosa

Yep, that's him. I certainly wouldn't mind if he turned out looking like Lyric. She is lovely :)
