Color guessing! What do you think he'll be?
We have a beautiful little colt. Mom is a grey, sire is black. I think he'll be grey. Some people are saying black or brown.

I think he'll turn grey, but will be brown until then.
Do you know what color his dam was before she turned grey?

No doubt brown. I hope he doesn't grey out, his color is beautiful! But odds are he will go grey.

im not seeing grey, and i think he will stay brown.

He is already loosing his baby fuzz and I am not seeing much indicator of him turning grey.....but he may be one of the late color bloomers but I am gonna say Brown.

I'm guessing that he'll stay brown too. Usually you can see around their face if they're going to turn grey. Cute little guy :)

Sorry, OP....I thought it was funny. Maybe not. My apologies.

That is unless the Agouti A gene is diluted of course when combined with the single creme dilute of the dam.
..huh? You are WAY off base here. The OP didn't say what the mare's original color is, just that she is gray, so where did you get the cream from? Gray is caused by the gray gene, not cream. Ee Crcr without agouti would be smoky black, but that's assuming there is no agouti.
Black also means there is NO agouti. Agouti is what turns black into bay, brown, or wild bay.
I have no idea what you put into that calculator to get brown and I'm pretty lost for where you got this information..

Was he a mousy grey color as a super-young foal? Black foals are born a mousy color. If he is going to go grey, the hair around his eyes will start to show grey hairs there.
