I'm going to say palomino going grey. No roan. He looks too golden now to be sorrel IMO.And the white mane that's coming in, many palominos are quite red/sorrel looking at birth.

I am the person who was asking about this foal's color. I did go out to see him today and took more pictures. My personal opinion (not a color expert by any means) is that he is palomino based and not sorrel. But I could be wrong. Here are a few pictures of him from today.

I think you may have a gray or even a palomino roan. Can we see a picture of the sire?

IMPO palomino roan going grey. The shade is too "adult" for the foal to not be grey IMO. As well as that, it just seems a bit golden to be chestnut. I think roan is there too, mostly with how the hindquarters are quite roaned at this point.

Could the colour on the hindquarters not be just possibly grey? We had a foal who almost completely greyed out by the time he was 6 months old, and this is basically what he looked like, with the blue tone and all even though he was a dark dun. Sadly I do not have pics to show what I mean though

It could be, but I would expect to see other indicators of early greying - goggles, murky tail etc.

my opinion has changed with the new photos.

Palomino roan, going grey.

I did not take any pictures of the sire while I was there, but he is gray.

You won't know til you test. You will just be guessing for years otherwise. I have had grey foals grey out that fast.

Hm maybe it would be easier to guess by looking at the foal he's with in the second to last photo. To me it looks like it has all the same indicators, just it's shown more
