What colour are his eyes? Aren't champagnes usually born with light eyes? My mind is saying green?

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.

Not Smoky Black...here are three Smoky Black full siblings that are the same colour as they were as foals.

To ride the sky, just to clarify, smoke blacks can and do look different than the foals you posted. They do not always look like that.

From what I see I'm thinking he's shedding black. Testing is an excellent idea and will help clear up any confusion.

I was under the impression that the color Smoky black didn't change from birth to adulthood. That they are always that smoke/burgundy color. Is it possible for them to be brownish/champagne as the foal in this thread and to be multiple colors instead of one overall tone? How much can the color change from babyhood to adulthood? Do you have examples?
All of these seem to be one overall tone that falls within that same smoke/burgundy tone.

A smokey black horse can look exactly like regular black horse. There is no visual way to tell a smokey black from a regular black 100% of the time. You have to have the cream test to know for sure.

I'm not nearly as knowledgeable as Chiilaa or NDAppy when it comes to colors, but I BELIEVE silver is a modifier, not an actual color. The silvery-grey coat color many foals are born with isn't really any indication of their future color....for example -

My baby Fiona in her foal coat which was that silvery-mousey gray:



And her now as a yearling, now, (common consensus is that she and her brother are dark liver chestnuts):
