Baby Aden, What color is he?!?!

So most of you know that Kita (Gray) and Beau (Blue Roan) had a little stud colt back in June. When he was born there was a huge debate on what color he was, and there still is.

He LOOKS like a red roan, but if you look very close to his head I think I see some grey coming in. So he might turn grey?? I just don't know but I really want to get his registration papers in, the longer I wait the more it costs. So anyone's opinions would be great!

Here he is...









And in these ones you can see, what I think is gray, coming in.

I thought Red Roan at first glance, but looking closer, I'm totally stuck! He sure is handsome though!

He looks like a red roan to me, but I do see what you mean about the grey coming in around his face.

Off first glance, red roan.. but what if he greys out? Actually the Fugly forum is good for this kind of thing. (Mods, please remove the mention of this if you need to, I have no idea if it's okay or not)

I'm glad to see that everyone is just as stumped as I am! Allie I will have to try that forum.

Kitten a red roan and strawberry roan are the same thing, I would love it if he stays a nice red roan, but I'm not thinking so. But thanks for saying he's cute! He knows it too!!

I don't have a definitive answer for you but I'm thinking he is going to grey out. He may also be coming over for a "sleepover/stay with me party" If you hear a trailer in the night....go back to sleep...You're dreaming..... :P

*just because I have a grey fetish doesn't mean I stole him...can't I just borrow him for the next ohhhh....30 years?!?!*

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

he is very cute!!! You could always contact the association... maybe send pictures?? The last couple foals I registered I had to send pictures in (I did it online).

I looked on AQHA and here are some different greys: http://www.aqha.com/magazines/americ...ies/march.html

Maybe a rose grey??? I don't know much about greys and how they change color... never lucky enough to own one lol
