aaaand here's another....

Bay or Brown?! After reading some of these posts, I'm thinking he's brown! All these years I thought I had once owned a bay!

This is my old thoroughbred Tango (registered name Notadaygoesby):
Mid-winter (In tennessee, we get pretty warm days on occasion which is why he's a little wet)


Late winter


"normal" color except his tail is dyed :)


Horribly bleached at the end of summer



Sire: Waki Warrior. I think they look SO much alike!

Both your gelding and his sire are definitely browns. I love brown.

I believe brown as well. If I am correct, Bays tend to have "high points (?)" Of black on them. For instance, Shooter has black "socks" that go up to his knees and the back leg knees... Not sure what they are called. He also has black tipped ears and a chocolatey looking coat elsewhere. Bays also have colour on their muzzle to distinguish brown from bay, but whether black or brown, I'm not sure...

Their mane and tale are black.

I could be entirely wrong in my explaination, though

Black Points* that is called agouti. In a bay the gene would look like this 'A' That means the horse is Dominant for agouti.. A Brown horse also has "Black Points" AKA Agouti His gene looks like this 'At'

What makes him a brown is the light colors on the Soft parts of the skin.. Muzzle, around the eyes, flanks, belly, girth/armpit area.

Thanks you guys! It's really pretty interesting, I always just thought that a brown horse was one that was almost black but had a mealy muzzle and was lighter around the flanks :)
