My mare Luna foal a beautiful filly earlier this week.
I am confused on her color as I have never seen this before.
Mom is a dark bay, dad is a dark bay. They are both out of true black sires.
Here are some photos of the filly. She looks blue/silver and has a tiny tuff of brown on the end of her ear hairs. In the light you can see a little bit of mousy color on her back upper legs. Her skin is dark, black looking.
Is that what black babies look like? Or do you think she will be more of a brown or seal bay?

Yes, blacks are born mousy grey. The only time a black horse is born black is if it also carries the grey gene. So grey babies are black horses and black babies are grey horses.

I can't see the picture, but I had the same thing happen to me. Last year my filly was born a silver grey, very striking. I had never seen that. At 14 months, she's a clear black bay. I guess that's what they look like, but even my vet hadn't seen the silver.

Hi Robin, I canīt see the picture, but is seems you are describing a black foal, and is certanly possible from the bay parents. I also understand a black foal may be hard to tell appart from a dark bay/brown foal, sometimes even after they shed. I had to test mine to be sure (after I posted my foal's pics here and in a coulour forum).
He tested black, so here you have another one to see

Robyn, beyond what colour she is: Congratulations!!!

Not always true. I had worked with a Black walking horse mare that was bred to a black and white stallion, the foal came out black and white and she shedded out black and white.

Only a few hours old:

She's really sun bleached here but you can still see the black hair:
