Question What color will he turn?

I have no idea what color he will turn out to be? His sire is an appoloosa and his dam is a bay. What color will he turn out to be?

Appaloosa isnt a specific colour... What colour appaloosa is the sire? Bay, chestnut, etc?

Agreed, the appaloosa part of the sire is actually the pattern, we'll need to know his base coat color to form any kind of guess.

Just from the pictures, though, it looks like he may be black, brown, smokey black, maybe even grullo. Those foal coats are so funky because they very seldom seem to truly resemble the color that they will grow up to be.

Sorry about that I thought that I put that he is a black appoloosa.

Hmm, well, that gives us options of black, bay, brown, smokey black, buckskin (or a brownskin perhaps).

I suspect he may be a black, but you'll have to wait until his first shed to see for sure.

I think he is black. There seems to be a tendency for black with cream to be born a bit darker than black without, although this is by no means a rule.

My hiccup looked like that, he's black.

He could end up being a leopard coat pattern. My black mare was born black.
He could be bay brown . I have seen solid brown /black foals end up as leopard appy's. Jusst have to wait and see ;) specially with Appy, as they can change every year .

Hes not a leopard. He may or may not color out or varnish roan as he ages, but he is not a leopard nor ever will be. Leopards are born their pattern.

Yup yup...sometimes they totally color out leaving the spots behind, but they aren't actually leopards...
