My boy keeps changing colors.

So my boy here cannot figure out what color he wants to be. His papers are buckskin but as he is shedding out.. hes decided to change to quiet a few different colors... Im excited to see what color he turns into :) the greyish color is his new one.

He wants to be like the horse in Wizard of Oz!

and that's kinda unnecessary, thunderhooves.

would he be considered a smutty buckskin perhaps? I'm not sure...I think he's still got too much winter coat there to really tell!

I've got a filly who seemed to be going grey, but as she's shedding out this spring, seems to be staying roan after all...atleast for this year; she's got alot of white hairs around her eyes though, so I'm wondering how many years she'll actually maintain her roan coloring, hahaha

He's very handsome!

Yep, looks like a sooty buckskin in the making to me! I am curious to see how he looks once he's shed out!

My Saro did that same thing when she was young. At one time I thought she was going to be a palomino her body went so light.
I'm a sucker for a buckskin so I think he's gorgeous no matter the finished product. Er unless he goes bay

His papers are right he is a buckskin. Some can get darker but with age is when they really fade out and look nice. I prefer the buckskins that have the smokier color like your boy does. He is pretty and will change colors a few times he looks really young so he has time to get it figured out. Also it can be a horses diet when they start changing colors.
