What colour is he?

So i really want to know what colour you consider him, in the My Horses i just put smokey black as a guess because when i googled the colour, some of them had the brown in their coats like he does, but he doesn't have as much, but he's got different colours everywhere. His tail is really funky, its got black, and then a layer of brown and then a layer of white in the middle. I was just wondering if there was any other colour he could be or if I was close with smokey black. I was also wondering, he's got grey in his mane and grey in his coat and i was wondering if he's going to grow out of it, he's only 2.

I have no clue what you'd call the color because I'm no good at that, but I will say he is way to ugly for anyone to own and I will gladly take him off your hands for you Im just kidding he is GORGEOUS!! I seriously am in love with his color!

I'd lay odds he's a gray, which is why he's graying out in some areas and funky colors in others.

I don't think Arabians have the cream gene in their gene pool, so if he's pure Arab he can't be smoky black. He looks like either a brown or black that's going grey. Any idea what his parents were?

He's pure Egyptian Arabian, I don't actually know what his parents were but my sister had him before me and she had talked to the breeder and he had said to my sister that he would likely turn out black but with all that grey and brown in him, I just don't know if he's right or not.

He is greying out. He also needs some more groceries. My arabian colts ate me out of house and home at his age!

If he's purebred, there's no way he can ever be smoky black. He's going gray, which is why he looks so funkily colored at the moment.

If he's purebred, where are his papers? They'll indicate the color of both the sire and dam, but you can bet at least one of them was gray.

Oh yeah I know he's thin, I made a post in Nutrition about that because I had some issues. So since you have Arabians maybe you could go read that for me and give some suggestions?

I feel really stupid for not looking at the papers. I'm going to go quickly check and I'll let you know what they say and maybe that will help more with determining his colour?
