What colour do you think my filly will end up being?

Hi Everyone, I am new to this forum :)

We have recently welcomed our first foal into the world (a little filly). I was just wanting to see what colour you all think she may end up. Her Dam is a grey welsh pony and her sire is a black fresian
I have a feeling, from what I have been reading, that she may turn grey..Just wondering if others think differently as I am new to all this.
I am also wondering if it is possible to tell how they will grey out (e.g flea bitten/dapple etc.)? BTW I have no idea how to add pics so am just hoping these work I added them in attachments.

She is bay. And has a 50% chance of turning grey.

I think it is likely the foal will grey the second pic this foal has such dark points at birth and it kinda looks like she has grey circles around the eyes I can't tell since the pic is blurry.

Generally points that show up in their newborn coat will indicate if they are going to grey or not. However, above the points it is so light it makes me question if she will grey, I've seen normally bay foals that look like that and stay bay.

So let's stick to 50% and see what happens in the next few months. You'll know by the time she sheds her fluff:)

Bay for sure, and I feel she isn't going to grey, BUT there is still a chance she might.

For now though I feel bay with no grey.

I see bay, too.

She's awfully cute!

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
