What colour do you think he will be?

My friends welsh pony had a colt 2 days ago. He is a very strange mousy colour, a few people have said he might turn black which would be really cool but he could also be bay. His mum is bay (red carrier) and so is his sire who is a connemara, when I did the colour calculator he had 70% chance bay, 20% chestnut and 5% black. His colour looks dun or buckskin but there is genetically no way he can be those colours.

Here is a pic of him at 5 hours old

I am going to guess bay. However, I know a place with lots of people far more expert than me where you could post his pic and they could probably tell you a heck of a lot more lol.

I'm not an expert either, but he looks like he'll be a bay to me too. Whatever color he is, he's absolutely adorable!

He might be a bay, but what if his color stayed the same? I think he would look handsome.

Oh I wish I could upload pics of my friend's bf's filly when she was born. Her dam was a bay & her sire black & she came out looking almost identical in color to this guy (even the facial markings are the same!).
They werent sure what color she'd be either, & she ended up being a strawberry roan with a dark grey mane & tail.
This guy could very well be a bay, maybe possibly with some roaning... it's always fun to watch weird colors like this shed out! I'm just taking into account all the white in his coat, as well as his tail.
Keep us posted!

Hmm Well you can't have a roan without a roan parent...

OP - the foal looks like a black to me. Most blacks are born mousy colored.

Thanks for all your thoughts, he certainly is a mystery! Which is why he has been called "Smoke and Mirrors" AKA Smokey I can't wait til he sheds out in a few months and we can see what he will be.

I'm going with black. I know 4 foals that were born just this year, and all turned out bay, but none of them looked close to that little guy. Now I do know a belgain/clyde that was born the same silvery/mouse gray that colt is, and he turned out jet black.

I am also going to vote for bay though he may surprise us all. One of my guys was born a sort of smokey color and he shed out black, but he didn't have the color variation like what your guy does. He was the same smoke color all over.

My filly was born 06/28/10. Her dam was a grulla (black dun) and her sire was a chestnut paint. Rain (the filly) is definitely a bay. She was born with light colored legs that shed off black.

Goodness look how dark her face is getting! (That's a yearling halter on her - she has a HUGE head!)
