She is bay, she has the black mane&tail, black points, and in the pictures below you can see her black muzzle better. :)

Actually, she is a brown. Brown is a mutation of the bay gene, so it still has the black points - mane and tail, legs, ears and muzzle. The difference is the pale in her 'soft' points - behind the muzzle and in the flank. She is clearly paler in these areas.

Exactly what Chiilaa said.

It's all an agouti thing. Bay, brown and wild bay are all versions of agouti.

I was told my mare has a blanket with spots and is varnish and they look very similar to each other (minus base color) so I would say your horse has a blanket with spots and varnish coloring.
Love her btw

Might I add a question here?
When appies that have the blanket w/ spots and varnish grey out do they keep the spots? My mare has gotten 3-5 new spots in the 5 months I have had her.

Spots uncovered by varnish will stay the base colour

Varnish is not greying. It is a completely different process.

Bay roan with a spotted blanket......... the horse may roan more with age, I have had apps change colors with the seasons, sorrel with a snowcap blanket that turned almost completely white in the winter...
That is the best part of owning a App ,There is not two the same.........
