What color is He???

Carter (formally called, Dirt) was a rescue that I got on July 9,2011 He is such a sweet boy, but is very nervous. Anyways, I am wondering what color he is. He is a Friesian/Standardbred gelding and stands 17.1hh at 5 years old. =) Any info on him would be fantastic!

That would be my guess as well. He'll gray out more as he ages and within a couple of years, there will be no questioning his color . He's a cute boy.

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/

Thanks! He looks like he is greying out from being a bay. He has a half white tail which is very strange. He is dappled and people have called him a silver taffy, but he only has a white tail and not mane. Then, he was called a Gulastra Plume, but not all of his tail is white. So now I am asking again haha

White or part white tails are common with greys. I also say grey, and he is lovely!

Oh, he will. I can almost guarantee it . Here in the next couple of years, he'll likely be a gorgeous dark dapple gray. Do you know what color his standardbred parent was?

Not a clue. He was a rescue. I just noticed that in the pic of him in the surcingle, he is walking like a Standardbred...strange lol. He trots with the normal horse gait though. I hope he turns into a stunning dapple grey because those are my favorite =) Hehe.
