    Another "Brown or Black?" question

    I recently brought home a mare that is supposedly solid black. I have no summer photos to compare - so just what she looks like now. I was thinking she might be seal brown with her light muzzle and the light around her eyes, but after my mustang's thread brown or smoky black or? I'm just not sure.

    She does have more pronounced brown I spots but her dark areas seem much closer to black than my gelding's. So here are some pics - what do you think?

    One more pic - caught her on the edge of the pic but I think it show her brown area on her face well.

    Hmm, just judging on those pictures, I would probably call her a brown. What makes me think that is that it appears the area around her flanks, between her hind legs,and underneath her belly back by her udders appears to be significantly lighter than the rest of her. Plus, she does have the very clear black points on her legs.

    There are a lot of horses that look just like that that are referred to as black. Nuuu! It's brooown. I board with one of these particular sneaky horses. I actually board with a bunch of browns and I know almost all of them are misregistered. Sigh. These are the issues faced by those interested in color genetics.

    What gets me is that the one horse that everyone agrees is brown looks much blacker in person than the one majority claimed as black in the other thread. I really need to get a pic of these two together. LOL.

    I'd say seal brown but I'm definitely no expert on color!
