I would say that he is brown, not true black. In the summer photo, there is some evident browness to his muzzle and an overall brown tone. Some can be very tricky to tell.
If the sire was indeed a true black, then there is still a chance that he inherited agouti from the mother, as red horse are known carriers of the gene, although they will not show it.
