Is my Palomino colt turning Gray?

He was born almost completely white with just a slight (and I mean very slight hint of cream). He has through the months started to show more of a cream color. Not sure if he is turning more Palomino color or graying out. The sire is heterozygous gray (originally chestnut) and the dam is a Palomino Paint with some black points at knees, mane and tail (possibly buckskin?). Thanks in advance for posts!!

I am going to go with yes. However, he is very light, and that makes it hard to see much.

I tried to delete this posting along with another one where the pictures wern't working. My last post all of the pictures are working. It's the one that says, hope this works. Does anyone know how to delete postings once made?

The picture of his stifle makes me think yes because there are chunks of even lighter hairs, but at the same time, he's really pale himself so it's hard to tell for sure.

They didn't the first time. It just said picture not available. Alas, the internet and its issues..

His whole body including his legs were white when born. You could not even see the white leg markings at all. He recently started to get darker on the legs and more cream color throughout the body when he started getting his winter coat.

Some palominos are almost white because they are so light. Same with buckskins, but they have black points that make it obvious they are buckskin. A girl I know's mom's mare is like that. Her body is almost a grayish color with the slightest hint of yellow.

His dam is a Tobiano buttermilk buckskin. She has a dark tail and a light mane with two small black patches. The only other black is on her legs ( very small black areas). The colt does have a dark tail on the underneath side. Also legs are getting a bit darker. Would he possibly be a very light buckskin or do there have to be very prominent black areas? I'm confused because I've read that horses going gray lighten with age. He seems to be getting darker with age.

Grey horses will often darken significantly before getting lighter.
