Looks chestnut to me. It takes a few years for a horse's colour to settle down and usually they change quite often until they are 2 or 3.

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.

How old is he? He is still a chestnut/sorrel. The first sheds tend to typically be the darkest shed.

Yup I did. I can see the bits that would be confusing on a foal, but he isn't going grey or anything else funky Just shedding out weird. Horses like to keep us on our toes

Yep, chestnut (or sorrel, depending on who you ask). Same difference though, still genetically red.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He can't be grey unless his sire or dam were grey. Grey is dominant. If a horse has grey, they are grey.

Definitely sorrel/chestnut ... maybe a flaxen sorrel/chestnut due to the lighter mane.. but still a sorrel/chestnut.
