Color Coat Test mailed today ~guess the grey status
 
So the hair has been pulled (poor baby lost some tail) and the test is in the mail today. Anyone want to guess the grey status before the results get back?

Not grey :-)

I voted not grey, but for me, its just a shot in the dark.
Love flea bitten greys though, like mommy.

That is what we are hoping for. It would be a shame to loose his beautiful chrome in a grey coat ;)

The coat color test will take out all second guessing since some don't show signs of grey until they are older. For example, this filly turned out to be grey:

Also going with not grey. :-)

I went with gray just because I am usually wrong LOL. He is a pretty boy.

I would have to say, I would have suspected the filly was grey. The dark, dark legs and adult colouring screams it to me.

I'm going to vote a definite NO on the grey status. He doesn't have goggles and I think most greys tend to be fairly dark when they are young (notice how much darker the filly is).

He looks bay all the way! Cute little guy! :)

A different bay/grey filly than the one posted before. I have month old pictures of her, she didn't have the dark legs and was already shedding out of her baby coat, turning her face dark. Don't have any newborn pictures of her, she was a month old when my cousin came and picked her and her mom up.

My cousin makes her look quite tall, but she stopped growing at about 14.2hh :lol:

I'm thinking not grey. :-)
