What color will he be?

You can see what the dam looks like, the sire was a mostly white, chestnut Tobiano.

Agree, a bay. And a cute little one!

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

He definitely looks like he's going to stay a bay, and an adorable one at that!

Bay? Even with no black points?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

He has black points iride. Look at his lower legs. Bay/brown foals are born with mousy colored legs. Just like black tend to be born mousy colored all over.

Foals that are not grey are not born the adult versions of colors.

This foal is either a bay or a brown (will be easier to tell for sure as he ages). His dam is for sure a brown.

If his dam is brown and his sire is a chestnut, wouldn't that mean he should for sure be a brown, and not a bay? I have to say he'll be brown, because he wouldn't be carrying the gene for bay, from what I understand.
He's absolutely adorable though!
