Color question on yearling

We have a yearling paint colt out of a smoky black mare and our sorrel stallion. When he was born, he looked like a palomino, now he's like a golden buckskin kind of color, but he has no black on his legs, but he has a black mane and tail? Or mostly black anyway. Anyone have any idea on what color he might be? I can't post a picture because I'm on my phone

You would have to post pictures for anyone to give you a decent response.

From the sounds of it, he very well may be a buckskin. His genetics tell him he could be. Same with the color that you describe. Not all buckskins have black points on their legs.

Then again, he could be palomino that has the sooty gene that will make his mane/tail dirty looking.

Oh he is cute!

I'd definitely say he's a buckskin.

He's so adorable!

Looks more like a palomino with Sooty gene than a buckskin

Buckskin. White on the legs is hiding the black leg points.
