need help figuring out his color

We could use some help from the color experts! Mocha is a 4 month old mini that my friends have. Momma is a Buckskin, black mane & tale, Sire is a black & white pinto. We can not figure out what color to call him

He is terribly cute! I'm still learning about colors myself but I'd like to guess.
Minimal tobiano sooty buckskin.

I am here to learn! :)

I agree with the minimal tobiano. However, I think he might be brown based buckskin instead of bay based. However, the photo isn't great, so I could well be wrong.

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.

Am I weird? The first thing I thought of was black or maybe grulla later?

Can't be grulla because neither of his parents have dun.

I'm not sure if buckskin or brownskin though. It would depend on whether he looses some of that sootiness as he gets older. Minis are so all over the place with their colours.

I want to just snuggle with his momma though! eep! She's adorable.

Ah. That explains a lot. No idea then, clipped horses are usually very different looking.

There is no sign of tobiano, but the white tail suggests silver. However I don't remember all the genetic rules fo silver, but I think there are some colors it can be present, but does not express due to the base color of the horse.
