I think that is part of its breeding AB. If I am remembering correctly and recognize the breed right, it is one that is bred as a meat animal.

Oh, that makes sense then. Kind of like what they have done with the other meat animals.

Found the info I was looking for. I knew that I had seen that picture in multiple places lol.

The stallion pictured is an Ardennes. They are bred for draft work and for meat production.

Thanks Morab! I tend to gravitate toward bays.

The article was a great read and helped to clarify things.

It's cool that there are different shades of bays. Yours if beautiful. Here is my guy, he's a dark bay (almost black)

The first two pics are just to show his brown, and the last one is to show him in full.

Sienna is colored like yours Livesto

And gets all dappley in the summer and reddish, hence her name I guess. She came to me with the name.

Savanna gets random dark spots on her body, and underneath her mane she is very dark red. But, bay all the same! :)

Also, bay is one of my favorite coat colors. Of all the shades, my favorite is this:

You can't see the entire shade, but the dark bay horses with the brown noses and fawn color by their flanks and elbows is striking to me. I owned a gelding with two back socks as well, and I LOVED it!
