I have noticed his back two hooves have white striping where as his front two are solid black. Does this indicate he will have some kind of white markings like socks on his rear legs?

I could definitely be wrong, if I am someone please correct me... But I would say no. My mare has light feet and no white leg markings. Our Paint gelding has 4 socks and he has white feet in the front but the hind are striped, not solid white. Typically lighter feet mean white markings but I would think they would already have appeared on him. But given his age, you never know.

Congrats by the way, he's STUNNING! You'll have to keep us updated on his progress!

With him being bay and legs still being white/lighter since he's so young there's no way to see if there are actually socks or not until he blacks out on those points. Just curious to see if everyone thought there would be. I haven't ever seen an arabian with the lighter feet on dark legs? Maybe a throwback from his paint lines though?

You may find he has little white dots at the coronary line.. or not. Striped hooves are a genetic thing. Appaloosa's are noted for strped hooves and they can have white legs, solid chestnut or black.. and the hooves are striped.

It really is not important. Time will tell you your baby horse.

He could have really light skin but it may never show through with his hair color. This is something that is also common on white horses (i know he is a bay) they will have white socks and when they get a bath it will show up at pink when they are wet. You might be able to tell on this might I say ADORABLE little guy when he gets wet or a bath if his skin is lighter causing the strips on his hoof.

Your horse is an extension of you.
