What colour is Dexter?

I'm thinking dun but as his winter coat is coming in his whole back seems to be darker. Also I was wondering if anyone has thoughts on his build. He's only 14 months old and he's already built like an adult, does this mean he might be quite stocky when he matures? He's 14.3 hands. 3/4 quarter horse 1/4 percheron.

All I know is his mother was a grey and his full brother was a liver chestnut.

Awfully cute, whatever he is.
I'm leaning towards buckskin with countershading over dun, but were one of his parents gray, by any chance? Wondering if he's heading that way....

Whoop, beat me to it. Notice any white hairs mixed in with his base color? What color was his sire?

His face does look a touch of grey in that first shot. However, I am leaning more toward brown based buckskin to be honest. Not dun IMO.

Sorry, I never got to see his sire. He doesn't have white hairs just light cream coloured.

Nope, just yearling.
