It's likely he is a rose gray and will gray out when he's older, his eyes are baby eye colored and will darken up as he gets older. He is too cute concrats!!!!

Most animals are born with uncoloured eyes. This means you can see the muscle underneath, which appears a blue-grey colour. They will pigment in the next few months.

I think this baby will grey, yes. He appears to be sporting a nice set of goggles - the white hairs around his eyes. These are a good indication of grey in a foal.

His eyes will turn dark brown. :) As for the grey, It's kind of hard to tell at this point. Besure to share pictures when he is going through his first shedding, but I do agree with the posters above he probably will be grey :)

Chiilaa I'm going to disagree with you on the greying. He doesn't appear to be grey in any of the pictures on his foaling thread.

He is a red tobiano (like I stated on that thread). Many red (non-grey) foals have lighter color around their eyes.

It's his muzzle color that makes me think he'll be gray.

Lots of foals regardless of final color are born with lighter muzzles. That is not an indicator of grey.

That's true, no matter what color he is, he sure is cute.
