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.

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.

He is five months.. he was born may 2011 at 930 am, and yeah I think he mite be a lighter chestnut.. I was thinking gray because what he looks like now.. But I will never know for another year or three haha

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.
