What color will my colt be?

Hi I am not new to horses, but I am new to foals. I recently bought a 5 month old quarter horse colt that will now be a year this May. I am trying to figure out what color he will be. Right now he is a really dark brown with black around his eyes and down his legs. His stomach is really light brown almost a blond. His mane is black with brown/red tips and his tail is also black with almost blond streaks in it. The lady I got him from said his father was a bay. What color does any one think he will shed off to be?

Hi there! Welcome to the horse forum.

Do you have photos? And what color was the dam?

Photos are required lol but to me he sounds brown. Foals are notorious for severe sun bleaching, which would cause the blonde streaks in the mane and tail and my black mare gets red streaks sometimes as well.

I am not sure about very dark bays, but Jack is a bright/mahogany bay and his legs were fawn colored at birth. He shed out black later. You said he has black around his eyes, is that where he has shed out a little? If so, I would say he'll be black or dark brown.

Where you post there is a go advance button click that and there is a place to upload pics. Or you can post [IMG] codes from a photo uploaded like photobucket.

He looks like a very cute brown to me. He'll always be two toned even when the baby coat is gone.
