Odd colored paint.. color name?

I have a 2 yr old stud colt named Phoenix, his color is a bit of a mystery to me as I rescued him and have no idea what his parents looked like. He started out the yellowish of a buckskin and over the winter changed to the odd golden brown he is now with shading on his legs and along his back, they are no black points and his tail is black/white/black.. here are some pictures of him.

Also his muzzle stayed lighter in the winter indicating he was going to be a bay, but he didn't go anywhere near bay.

He looks like a "brownskin" tobiano to me (brown+creme+tobiano). Is that his current summer coat? It looks rather rough.

Brownskin! My boy's a brown based buckskin out of a perlino mare and black tobiano and looks a lot like your boy. And like yours, he looks like a dark buckskin in the summer and turns really dark in the winter. They're like chameleons, always changing colors. :)

First picture is at 4 months last August. Second is in October when his winter coat started to come in. Third is in November, and the last was just a couple months ago. Chameleons!

Brownskin? Sounds like a brand of exercise clothing!

Looks like there are no leaves on the trees and some flowering trees, so, if I had to guess, I'd say it was early spring and he wasn't completely shed out yet.

If he is a Paint, then I 'think' it might say on his parent's papers, their colours. That might give you an indication of what her colour might be.

Brownskin seems to be the running answer and your baby does look a lot like my baby Kayella :)

Ponypile - That was taken in April, he was still shedding out and the constant cold snaps kept him rather fuzzy :)

FeatheredFeet - as noted in the above post, he was a rescue, I have no idea what my little man is
