What Color is Kal?

Ello! This is lovely little Kal, born July 9th, 2012. He and his dam are owned by my BO. He had to be pulled from maiden mare, MJ. He is presumed to have been a 'dummy foal' as in he may have been deprived of oxygen as he struggled through the birth canal before he was promptly pulled. Now, he is fuzzy as a little bear and spunky.

This is his dam and him, any ideas on what colors they are? I have been assuming that they are both grey, as MJ was a sorrel. I am useless at colors and genetics unfortunately. His sire was a sorrel.

Both Dam & foal look to be Appaloosas.

Mare can be but isn't registered AQHA, and the sire is registered AQHA.

What is the sire's name? What about the dam's parents?

Both of them are definitely showing appaloosa colouring, but that isn't a colour completely restricted to the Appaloosa breed.

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.

Appaloosa genes in Quarter horses are rare but not unheard of. Check out Reminic in Spots. Both parents were solid QH's. He came out with a HUGE blanket. If the mare CAN be reg. QH i suggest yall do it and get the foal registered AQHA and ApHC. He could be one of those VERY rare cases and it would do the horse world good to know about him being produced!

The foal's sire's name is Hickory Valentine Doc. I am inquiring about the mare, MJ's breeding right now. She is microchipped but not yet registered.

ETA: I have been bugging the BO to register her since she was bred. I really hope it'll happen.

AQHA and ApHC registration would not be possible. ApHC requires at least 1 regular registered Appy parent, which would make AQHA registration impossible...

To the OP - it is very very highly unlikely this foal is a dummy foal...

Why do you say that? Based on his development and slow start, the vet that looked him over suggested he was a dummy foal. It took him way too long to become co-ordinated like a normal foal (talking at least a month) and several months before he started being able to run around and be silly.

Although not impossible, it would be unusual for an actual dummy foal to nurse as early as in that first picture, and dummy foals don't normally turn out "spunky" while still foals. He may have been a bit short on oxygen, causing him to develop more slowly than normal, but he doesn't look or sound like a true dummy foal to me...
