What color is he?

So this is my Paint gelding. He is gray with a pink nose/blaze and a gray lip under his nose. He has flea bitten spots on his forehead and black on his hocks. Maybe from graying out if that's what happend? Comments on his color or more info would be cool :)

I honestly don't see any flea-bitten spots on him. Seeing him cleaner would do better, that way we could tell if perhaps he's a grey tobiano/splash/frame/sabino.

Edit: He's probably a grey splash or frame. He's greying out, which is causing the ticking and one spot of dark grey. How old is he?

I'll take closer pictures of his flea bites. He's 12. I just got him so all the pictures I've got of him he is dirty. The summer pix are from his old owner.

It's from greying out. Keep these pictures safe - in a few years, the dark hair on his legs will be gone, and you will need them to remember that lol. He may or may not get more fleabites, it's a bit hit-and-miss as to whether horses get them or not.

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.

So he's basically just a gray as suspected? Nothing else fancy shmancy? Hehe.

That depends. Is all of his skin black (aside from face/leg markings) or does he have big patches of pink skin (easier to tell when wet)? Even if he doesn't have any generic pinto patterns on his body, since he has white markings he still has some kind of pinto gene or combination.

If I'm correct it is frame or splash that causes blue eyes?
