Sorrel or Chestnut?

This is my dad's new 2 month old TWH colt, what color do you think he'll turn out to be? I was thinking sorrel or chestnut & what is his pattern, tobiano etc? His sire black/white & his **** bay/white.

Chestnut and sorrel are the same colour genetically. He is tobiano, with sabino I think.

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.

I was under the impression that sorrel and chestnut were genetically the same thing...

LOL, Chi and QH!!

To the OP - Oh My Stars, what a truly outstandingly beautiful baby!! He is a Tobiano and I think a Chestnut/White. Sorrel would most likely be a slightly darker shade of brown. Gosh, he is a charmer for true!!

Yes, same color. Some areas consider them different shades of the same color, but truly just the same color.

Technically it is the same color. Period.

I say some areas call different shades different things but it is just semantics.
In my neck of the woods the red horses are chestnut if you are an English rider and many Western riders call them sorrel.

Still the same color.
