Interesting foal? What color?

This is a foal that is for sale up near me. I'm curious as to what color he/she is? Just a sorrel with a flaxen mane and tail? Pally? What about what looks like Dun markings on his legs? Figured I'd share and ask the experts.

Very pretty! He looks sort of like a dark pally but if he's got dun markings (dun genetics) then perhaps he's a red dun of sorts.

The ad said the sire was black and the mother was a red dun.

Sort of looks like the foal has a silver gene.... ?

His coloring looks like a phase my silver bay foal went through.

He might just be a dunalino..a palomino with dun factors. That's what I see.

Odd. He looks dunalino and if his dam was a red dun, then the dun factor would come from her, but I tried a bunch of different combinations of genetic possibilities with a black sire and red dun dam, but none of them had dunalino or even palomino listed..

However, if his dam was a silver carrier, he could be a silver bay dun. I google image searced silver bay dun and they look very similar to that foal.

There is always that possiblity that the sire is a smokey black and not just black.
