What color is my colt?

What color do you think my colt is, obviously paint but what is his base color? His dad is a buckskin mom is bay. His eyes are greenish grey and his tail is mixed black with some flaxen and dark grey(grullo grey) His lower legs look like they are going to be black but they are silvery grey right now. His face is also darker than his body with lots of black above his eyes.

The initial baby fur is always different than the true color the horse will be, but to me, he looks like a bay.

He is either bay or buckskin lol. The shade he is at is making me think buckskin, but I am hesitant to say that for sure, since it's not the usual shade I would associate with buckskin in a foal. Having said that, he isn't the usual colour for a bay foal either lol.

As SAsamone said the baby fur is always different. A buckskin filly of mine was born super light, shed out to almost a sooty buckskin after a few months & is now a nice golden color at 2.
Your guy looks buckskin to me
