    Bay or brown?

    I know on my horse's papers say bay, but he's pretty dark. Right now he's shedding darker and is shinning. He has orange around his muzzle and the rest of him is like a dark chocolate features. He has black up past his hocks and knees. Any thoughts?

    Most likely brown. Registries don't distinguish between brown and bay. Is the horse's underbelly orangish as well?

    Parts of it mostly between the back legs when fully shed out. Otherwise very dark chocolate.

    I have a few in the breeding section of mays foaling thread. Last Page. I can't post on this phone. It's my stallion. I'm very positive that he's brown but I'm hoping for suggestions.

    MLP - I know without a doubt that your stud is brown. I think I've told you that before as well

    You may have. Thank you everyone. Are the genes of a brown much different from a bay?

    No they are both agouti genes. Normal bay is dominate over brown though.

    Different forms of Agouti. Bay is A, brown is At.
