Duke's coloring- nothing phenominal, just curious!

Duke is three a half years old. His sire was a registered chestnut straight egyptian arabian named El Deaux(sp? XD) and his dam was a registered, gaited Peruvian Paso. She was very similarly colored to Duke, with the metallic shine on her coat. She also had dapples, though- which Duke doesn't seem to have (yet). She was slightly darker, also. Both sire and dam are unfortunately deceased, and I have no pictures. I was told that El Deaux was a quite red chestnut, but have not seen him myself.

I don't have great pictures, but I"ll post what I have. The many-shaded, metallic look to his coat is absolutely beautiful, I'm not exactly sure what to call it!

(please pardon the overgrown feet. He's got 7 weeks of growth and it due for a pedicure! Also ignore the hay...he tends to wear more of his food than he eats! XD)

He's been pastured since the day he was born, so maybe that's it ^^ sun's just gotten to him!

I wasn't sure though, because even as a little guy (three months old and on) he had this look. I would think that at such a young age, bleaching wouldn't of been the cause.

A sun/summer bleached mahogany bay?

Was his mother listed as bay?

I'd say a very sunbleached brown.
