    I think he looks red roan based on first 2 pics, but then the 3rd pic has me second guessing myself.

    Thanks!

    Gesh looks like two different horses. That cream gene is a tough one to guess. We had one foal this year who we couldn't figure out until he shed out his foal coat if he was a bay or bucskin. He turned out bay but was sooooooo different then the rest of the bay foals born this year and had everyone second guessing his color.

    I am goimg to lean to red roan for this little cutie I think.

    Look like he's going to go grey to me. Gg/ee is 50/50 with grey being dominant. So.....the likelihood of him being Cr/e and NOT greying out is kind of like hitting the jackpot twice. Can be done, just not often.

    Don't forget roan also

    Grey, roan, palomino, all of the above? Lol

    Or red roan, grey? He is showing something there, and I'm unsure if it's his roan or actually greying out. I don't see any goggles on his face that scream grey to me in these pics though.

    Does the baby have grey goggles around the eyes? My honest opinion is palomino and roan.

    IMHO, he's a sorrel/chestnut, but as for whether he's carrying roan or just graying out...only time or testing will tell.

    I think chestnut going gray. I say no roan, as roan seems to speed up the graying process and he isn't that grayed out yet.
