Three babies... Color?
Okay first all of these pictures are screenshots since I'm on my phone and don't have them

All foals are by the bay(brown?) roan Blue Valentine/Hancock stud.

baby 1- Tonto
mom is chestnut

Baby 2- Poncho
Mom is grulla, sheds out the prettiest metallic silver in the summer. Baby has faint striping on his legs, tips behind his ears, and dorsal stripe.

Third baby- Dixie
Mom is some kind of paint, she was an outside bred mare but they decided they didn't want to fool with handling the baby for the first few months so I can't tell you much about the mare, only a few pictures of this little girl but she sure is gorgeous.

So... what do y'all think they'll turn out to be!? lol!

First looks like a black foal and second looks bay dun. If they're roans, it'll start becoming apparent when they shed their foal coats.

The third one honestly looks like a grullo or brown-based buckskin foal, but couldn't be with what colors his parents are. I'm guessing he's brown when he sheds. I'd be curious to see if this one is a roan when it sheds.

It's hard to tell when they still have their baby coats. But right now #1 looks to be possibly black, #2 looks like bay dun, and #3 is hard to tell... But I'm going to guess either dun or buckskin

Can't be buckskin or dun. Mom appears chestnut and dad's a bay/brown roan. Definitely black based, which would leave black, bay, or brown. I'm definitely going brown and I'm really curious to see if it's a roan or not.

ETA: went back and looked at the first picture of the third one. What color is that foal's dam? She looks chestnut in the last one, but the first one makes me not entirely 100% sure. Do you have a picture of her entire body? She's definitely not cream, so the foal still can't be buckskin. I don't really see dun because even a bay dun wouldn't be that dark, though she could be a really dark red dun, I suppose. [/thinking out loud]

Dad is brown so I bet that last baby is brown.

Yeah Ringo changes colors almost by the week, all we know is that he's a roan, he changes from blue to bay to brown looking and I can't keep up!

Then yeah i'd say Ringo's overall colour is brown

Can you get a better picyure of the 3rd foal's sam's face? I believe I am completely wrong in my first assumption that she might be chestnut because she's definitely not red at all. She appears to either be brown or a brown based buckskin, which then I would say her foal is also a brown based buckskin.
