Will be APHA colt. Breeding stock.
Sire is a red dun AQHA. His sire is dun, some say dunskin(Zans Diamond Dun It), his dam was sorrel.
Dam is a black breeding stock APHA.
Sire is heterozygous for dun.
There was 18.75% chance of grulla, bay, bay dun, and black.
Is he a bay or bay dun?
He has shoulder bars and a dorsal, but I know most foals have countershading.

Congratulations on that cutie pie!

Looks like counter shading to me, from what I can see, but there's not a really clear picture of the "dorsal stripe", could you post a better one.

I agree. Especially in that last pic, the dorsal doesn't look strong enough to be true dun.

Also looks like he's possibly brown, not bay. :)

That is countershading that you see ;-)

He appears to be brown (which is one of the mutations of agouti). He will probably look bay in the summer and seal brown (with cinnamon color around the muzzle and soft areas) during the winter. Brown gives you color variations for the seasons :D
