Going grey then. As for age, could be anywhere from yearling to three to be honest. Grey can vary a lot.

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.

You know, we can guess all we want about colors, but without pictures it isn't going to be real accurate...

*facepalm I didn't even realize those were the pics of the horse in question. Can you tell I am fully awake yet?

Nothing about those pics makes me think that he is grey. He does not look to have goggles in the picture you posted. Better/full body pics might be of some help.

I'll do that have to wait on Madison to come home when I take pics for some reason they come to me and I can't get a good enough shot the last pics were fun because I had 3 horses a mule foal and him trying for kisses as I bent to take those leg shots.

Are there any white hairs sprinkled throughout his coat? Or on his face?

I have a bay-going-gray foal that it is really hard to tell in pictures he was going gray (at least until his face got more white on it) because those individual white hairs don't show up in pictures. (Your leg pictures are great, by the way, those do look like white hairs).

What about when you part his tail, near the tail bone. Any white hairs in his tail?

Those where the first really evident places on my foal- stray sprinkled white hairs, especially on the face (but no goggles oddly enough) and white coming in at the end of his tail bone.

I noticed some white colored hairs on his belly the tip of his muzzle has some the stuff on the legs is recent and there arent any scars or injuries there I'll look him over later.
