I disagree entirely. Brown is caused by a form of agouti on a black based coat, which causes an essentially black horse to have lighter points as you have shown.

Just because he's dark in winter does not make him brown - he is BLATANTLY gold colored in summer, and if he were a brown roan, then he should be showing as a blue roan and not a buckskin/dun color. There is nothing in either black or agouti genes that would make him golden in summer. My fading black may turn brown, but she certainly isn't ever going to display such clearly golden coloring.

Here is an example of a buckskin roan, showing exactly what this horse is displaying - blue roan colored body parts with blatant gold on the face and highlights:

Thank you MacabreMikolaj (and all).

I used to have an Arabian gelding, who was my first horse, who passed away that I always considered dark bay. But I am thinking that is what folks are referring to as brown? He was almost black with mealy marks in the winter, but more brown looking in the summer.

Yes, he is a MUCH more classic example of brown. They're starting to realize now that most horses who've always been referred to as "dark bay" are in fact brown.

I stand by buckskin and/or dun roan. He looks classically like the Welsh Pony buckskin roan I posted. Neither black nor bay roan are going to produce such a golden head and highlights.

I know, I was pointing out that the horse I posted was a Welsh.

, Buzz's sire (the connie) was a really odd dun colour too but I have no clue what his dam looks like, sadly.
