Haha he's a handsome boy! And I went with gray just because of how light he is between his mouth and his brown fur. I am likely wrong though

I would have also guessed grey with that second filly SunnyD With one grey parent, if any foal came out that "adult" shade of bay, I would have been waiting for goggles to come in a shed lol.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

My cousins claims that she didn't realize that her girl was grey until she was much older. But then again, the granddaughter of my all time favorite mare was born midnight black, my mom told her brother that the filly was going to be grey. Apparently they didn't believe my mom because they registered her as black and have never bothered to change it even though she is nearly white right now as a 16 year old.

I'm voting yes on gray.

As to the gray goggles - our gray did not have them when he was really young. In fact I found 2 white eyelashes and thought he might go gray at that point. Everyone told me I was nuts. Well - he's pretty dang gray now and going to almost white as a 7 year old.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

My friend bought a coloured Paint/Andalusian (black and white) when he was 4 and now (at 13) he is white grey! You can only see his pattern when he's wet.

I have a feeling grey... but no clue :P

These two here have the same grey mom. The mare on the left has a grulla dad, and she was born dun. But cream gene has lightened her over the years. She's about 5 in this pic. The colt had a dun dad. In this picture he is lobo dun, but when he started shedding his baby fur he really greyed out. And that was when he was about 6 months old...

You can actually see the rings around the colt's eye

Nokota - Cream does not lighten a horse every year. If the horse was lightening and had a grey dam I would say the horse was probably grey... Cream is not progressive like that.
