I used to have a brown Arabian. Except I always called him a dark bay.

To me, the problem with the term "brown" is that it doesn't sound like a real horse color. It sounds like what your non-horsey relative calls almost any horse, including chestnuts. Like, "Hey, look at the brown horse over there." :roll:

To me a bay is a horse with a brown base coat with black points. So anything brown with black points to me is a bay.

So yeah, I know genetically "brown" is something different from bay. But to me it's still a bay, because it has black points.

If I invented the term "brown" I would probably use it for something like a liver chestnut. You know, a brown horse with no black points.

It also seems a lot of browns are confused with blacks. I see a lot of brown horses called black. And I'm kind of like, yeah, whatever!

I think perhaps my gray yearling is also a part of the Badass Brown club? What do you think? Badass Brown going gray?

*sniffles* I have no BAB with which to join the club. Every other color under the sun is hanging out at my place but, alas, I own no brown.

Would it be acceptable to claim my Niece's brown as my own for the time being? He is, after all, in my pasture for the moment. He is most definitely bad-ass.




Ooh, ooh, wait!!! Flipper is a brown!!! Yay!

He's not very bad-ass at much of anything though other than eating 5 times his weight in alfalfa and staying borderline thin.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Lol the only one that might be brown is Pistol. There is no way to know without testing him though (really funky little silver bay/brown pony). Otherwise, besides Pistol, I have two chestnuts, a black and a palomino.

It's OK Nd, we need you as quality control for the club, you know, so no sneaky little grullas get in or anything....
