I am about to purchase this Welsh filly. Her sire is a roan of some sort, and her mother is grey. I don't know what color the dam was before she turned grey. What can I expect from this little girl?

The foal looks buckskin.  I

The foal looks buckskin.  I don't see any obvious signs of gray or roan but both of those can be very difficult to ID on a buckskin because the naturally light base coat makes the light hairs hard to see.   If the foal does start to gray the first signs are usually white hairs around the eyes and at the end of the tail.

Grey signs?

Thank you! I'll look for those white hairs. By end of the tail, I assume you mean the tip and not the tailhead.
