Black, Brown, Gray, Roan?? What color is my filly??

My filly was born dark true black. Her sire is chestnut gone gray and her dam is a blue roan (Ee aa RnN). I know the filly is turning gray because she is starting to get goggles. She was born with 1 white eyelash. As she has gotten older her coat has started to turn brown with lots of white hairs mixed in. On her back two legs they are turning a tan or fawn color. Is she fading from the sun?? Is she black? Her nose looks black to me and not brown. My thoughts are blue roan filly going gray. What are yours??

Do you have a full body pic of momma? From the parts I can see, she looks to possibly be a brown roan.

Baby looks brown going gray. I believe roan babies are born roan, they don't "roan out."

Ok, so momma is definitely a true blue roan. Lol. A couple of the pics where you can't see her all the way in the first set of pics, she looks like she's brown.

Anyway, I'm going to go with either black going gray or brown going gray. There is no roan there, as roan foals are born roan, which this filly wasn't (double-checked myself on that one).

I'm pretty sure he was chestnut/sorrel. He is flea bitten gray and the color is chestnut/sorrel. He has produced chestnut/sorrel always with chestnut/sorrel mare, bay with bay mares and palominos with buckskin or palomino mares. I don't know if any of that helps out at all.

Black going gray I don't think the colt is roan but the baby is still young so it's hard to tell.

Black or blue roan going gray. I'd guess black, not really sure there is anyway to tell at this point if she's roan (without testing), the graying process would make it hard to tell.
