Beat me MM

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

People wpuld refer to this horse as a bay roan, but IMO it's a brown roan.


Brown can be light as well. It is not just limited to blacker/darker horses with brown around the muzzle, etc.

How would you go about determining the difference between a bay and a brown then? I thought the very definitive black legs were indicative of bay, whereas brown would remain more or less the same uniform shade? I haven't really seen a lighter brown before, I would definitely say the horse you posted is bay roan, could you post some pics of lighter browns? I'm not well educated on brown and like to learn!

It's the muzzle that gives it away. How the color is around the muzzle and the nostrils. I will try and dig up some pictures of what I am talking about.

Thaaaaaanks! We're having an argument at the barn over the color of a Trakehner, he's almost PITCH black except for a patch on his neck and an area on his body that are a lighter shade. We've also been arguing for awhile over whether Eve is bay or brown.

Muahaha, I totally win. I told Shay-la she was brown and she just keeps kicking dirt and cursing at me to shut my piehole, she's bay.

lol well technically you are both right. Brown is a form of bay.


Here are some quick examples (hopefully you can see what I am talking about. It's the clear delineation between the black nose and the super light color surrounding it, such as on the darker brown horses). As far as I know none of these horses are tested for brown, and most people wouldn't test. It's more just a gut feeling on my part I guess.

Here is a lighter brown (note the muzzle)-


I canít tell on the dam in this one, but the foal is brown





It is soooo much easier to see brown on a lighter horse in a winter coat, same goes for some of the dark browns as well.

I'd have to agree, brown roan. Such a beautiful shiny silvery look in the first picture, though. :)
