Opinion? 5 month old colt

Flecking on flanks that showed up as he shed out.

Here is my 5 month old colt. His mother is most definitely brown and his sire is a red dun paint. He's fully shed out here and you can see he's losing what were his very black stockings. He does have a few silver hairs in his tail and very faint flecking on his flanks.

Anyone wanna tell me what they think about his coloring?

Could be a repressed sabino gene? Lily has those little white hairs all over her body, and they concentrate the most in the flank and armpit areas.

If you want to draw a comparison between a more expressive sabino:
The white roans out through her whole body.

Do you have a better picture of his tail head?

Not roan, as his parents are not roan. A better picture of his tail would determine possible rabicano.

Close-up of his facial white and muzzle

This is his sire, picture belongs to HF member:

Tail...doesn't look as silver now as it did as a foal now that I'm looking...

And a couple of notes: His full brother AND half brother also have flecking on their flanks and silver in their tails and around their feed. One is a bay one is black. Both by the same sire.
