Bay and Brown?
This may have already been asked, but I see a lot of posts on whether a horse is bay or brown and I get confused. I was taught that any horse with an agouti factor was bay to some extent from seal bay (At), bay (A), and blood bay (A+) with color restriction going from least restrictive to most restrictive.
So am I wrong on these colors or is it something that varies from breed to breed and place to place? (ie. rabbits and being either black tort or sooty fawn, same color, called different things in US vs. UK).
If I'm not wrong on the genes and it is something that just depends on where you live or what breed you raise could someone help me on, for example, which situation it is okay to call a horse brown or seal bay? Also how much restriction is the line between brown and bay? Are only A+ agouti factor horses considered bay or does it depend on the strength of the particular A agouti factor on a specific horse to depend on whether it's brown or bay?
Sorry if my wording is too confusing, I'm just a little lost on the subject, lol.
