His foal coat in the first pic appears to be sun leached, which will usually happen when they're getting ready to go into their first shed (the long, fuzzy hairs die, so become more susceptible to bleaching).

Very much wrong. Two blacks have an equal chance of producing a bay, unless both are homozygous for black. Then you can STILL get a bay. Might even get a chestnut if they aren't.
That said, check the hairs around the eyes and on the muzzle. That is usually the true color. Not ALWAYS, but usually. ralley2.jpg
Look black? He isn't. Turned out to be very much a bay. Yep, black parents.
