Here are some progression photos as he was shedding his foal coat, after his foal coat was out, and this summer as a yearling. For a little while I didn't even know if I had a bay or a liver chestnut.

IMO, my vote is for grey. I had a mini filly born dun, shedded her foal coat out to pitch black, and by the time she was a year an a half she was nearly white.

It's difficult to tell by the photos, but it almost looks like extreme Countershading.

ETA: The greying around the eyes, muzzle and tail head make me lean towards Grey.
