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?
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.
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:
