When do colts shed their first coat

Our colt is a 6 week old grulla, so of course he has a golden color coat right now. When will he shed to his true mousey color?

Sire's name or pics of the sire? Wondering if he is truly a blue roan, as your colt appears more bay dun than grulla.

The colt is a grulla. I don't have the sire name or photos. Do you know how to do Punnett squares?

Lol we could figure the baby is black without a punnet square becuase black and black will always make black but your colt has ear tips a sign of bay dun instead of grulla. There are dark brown based roans that look like blue roans but acutally are agouti based. That is why ND wants to see the sire and im curious as well

The colt has dark black circles arou his eyes like eye liner and makeup, and his butt is already showing some silver, along with spots of his little body you can tell he has tiny of mouse color even. Dorsal stripe that follows through his tail and light guard hairs, a dark muzzle and dark tipped ears.
