Question I Have no idea what this colt is

Hey there. These pics are at 2 months old. He is a gift to me from a friend
Dam is a bay. Sire is a mystery- either a gold creme champagne, dun with black points, or a dark bay tobiano.
Colt has full eyeliner and black dimples on his butt, pitch black muzzle.

What do you mean, color or breed? His color is brown, because of the lack of black points, and as for the breed. No idea. But I don't know what you want to know so hope this helps??

Bay or Bukskin, I think.

Bay foals are usually born without the black points, and brown horses can have black points.

I think bay, however the mottled skin under his tail is making me suspect more, maybe champagne. Someone far more expert than I could tell you.

Bay or buksin. And as for breed I don't know, TB or SB maybe.

Not sure if that's mottled skin, could be his fuzzies comming off and looking moth eaten

He's got mottled butt.
He was also born almost black, he started lightening up about a month ago.
I was thinking maybe a smoky black or smoky buckskin?
Would it be possible for the creme gene (if he has it) to come out later as opposed to at birth?

Also I know he is either a Bs paint or a QH so I am not concerned with what his breed is necessarily, I am just confused by this color changing baby, his markings suggest the paint stud as QH don't typically have eyeliner do they?

Thanks again everyone for your input.

Well mottled skin comes with champagne, especially if it looks like flea bites but on the skin instead of fur, so smokey black is a possibility.
And no the cream gene would be there from birth, it's not like the Lp appy gene, or silver, if he has the cream gene he'll be palomino, buckskin, or smokeyblack. But regardless adult color is practically impossible to tell as babies so you'll have to wait and see, or get him tested.

His baby hair is probably sunbleached at this point. The best time to guess colors on foal coats is first born to a couple of days after. After that they start to sunbleach and it can really skew the color.

If mottled means champagne then I know who the daddy is- He has one cream gene and one champagne gene. I am going to have him tested either way- so that I can register him, but I didn't know that about the champagnes. Thank you so much- it will be interesting to see what he looks like when he gets older. THANK YOU!!!
