Rain is growing so much :) We know he will definitely have 4 white socks as all his hooves are yellow and the colour of them is quite distinguishable from the other mousy colour on his legs now that he is a couple of days old. I don't mind what colour he is, bay is my favourite colour anyway (especially with lots of bling) but would be really cool if he went black just because it will be fun to see such a dramatic change of colour :)

He's definitely going to be a flashy keeper, no matter what! You'll have to take lots of pix as he grows to document his color changes...

I say black :)

Pretty sure he'll be black. That mousy/grey foal coat almost always sheds into black.

Most bays are born with a pretty decided "red" cast to their foal coat, even the dark bays.

OP - the foal looks like a black to me. Most blacks are born mousy colored.
Well then that's odd because the filly I spoke of's parents definitely weren't roan in any form & she certainly is..

Possibly a different white gene causing the roaning in said filly. Sabino can cause some very "roany" horses, as can Rabicano.... but neither are real roan.

Don't know what color he'll shed into, but I wanted to say I think he's gorgeous and hope you'll post more pictures as he matures.

He is precious!!!

I don't think he will be bay. The only three foals I have ever owned were all bay (one from my chocolate silver dilute shetland pony and the other two from my bay mare) and they were no where near that color when born. They were reddish colored with buff colored legs that shed out to black. Their manes and tails were fuzzy black with buff in it.

He is cute - can't wait to see his color changing!
