Another vote for smokey black. There is a gelding at my barn that has been tested smokey black and she looks a loooot like him. Agree the agouti could've come from the chestnut sire, if he inheirited the agouti but no black from his parents it wouldn't express on him.

What do you mean by " if he inheirited the agouti but no black from his parents it wouldn't express on him"

The foal is carrying black. There are only two base colors in horses. Black and red. Everything else is a modification of those two colors...

They had a confusing way to say that agouti doesn't express on red. So if the foal didn't get a black gene, you wouldn't see an expression of the agouti. Or so that is how I interpreted it

They were talking about the red sire ND. He might have had agouti, but being red it would not express.

Totally wasn't reading what they said right then. It wasn't reading that way to me earlier.
