Lilly is also registered as a bay, and I was calling her bay until September when someone on here corrected me. I didn`t actually know the difference between Bay and Brown until just recently. I`ll have her colour changed on her papers eventually. Her coat now stays relatively the same but keeps the soft points. Her coat is significantly lighter as a youngster (not all due to sun bleaching) and gets darker as she's aged. Sorry for the pic overload.
^SD - he is so cute! You'll have to post more photos when he gets his summer coat.
Sorry for the poor picture quality, but you can see she`s very light.
Lightened up a bit...
Dark again and has stayed this colour for the last few years.
I totally get everyone's struggles with horses being registered or put down as a bay, I think there really needs to be a more accurate system for that.
I had not long ago learned about Brown and how my guy is one, and now I love them!
Whoever was in charge of filling out my ponies paperwork really failed hardcore. They had him down as simply a "Dark Bay" and had no comment on his obvious Sabino genes (he has a big speckley spot on his belly and really obvious chin spotting and big face stripe)

Lol, anyway, I love everyone's browns here. Defiantly some BA Browns.
