He's beautiful! Any chance he is a roan like his parent?

I'm honestly not seeing it, the color on his top half is totally solid and just gradients down into while. I just didnt understand the whole white underside, dark top

The light underside dark top is normal and typical foal coloring. Think baby camouflage.

In terms of roan or not, it's not something you can call until he is about a yearling. Roans can be born really solid looking, and then roan out in a shed or two.

But yes, he is bay at least. And not going to grey out.

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.

I would also guess bay, maybe dark bay by the look of him. I look forward to seeing how he sheds out. He's certainly a cute little guy.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah I would probably agree at this point :) but I'm excited to see how it turns out with age! Just got excited as its a new color in my field

My Red Roan Mare's first born was by a blood bay TB and the colt/gelding was a dark bay. Her 2nd and 3rd born were full sisters by a Doc Bar/PlayGun sire who is a top cutting horse champion as well as is his dam, Silver Pistol. The second 2 born fillies both took months to figure out what color they wanted to be. I registered both of them as Red Roan, but then later found out they had taken on the greying out gene of their sire.
