Bay, Brown, or Liver Chestnut?

I know that there are several threads in which there is quite a debate as to just which of these categories a certain horse falls into. I found another horse that seems to be sitting along those fine lines of distinction who I thought it might be interesting to share.

He is listed as bay, but I'm sort of inclined to say that he's more of a brown. He's a 2yr BLM mustang currently up for adoption on their internet adoption site, so if you think he's cute you should adopt him!

(It doesn't work if I try to link the images directly so hopefully this link will work for those of you who are interested)

I'm going to say brown.

His legs don't lighten enough around his coronets/lower legs to be a liver chestnut and with the orange on his muzzle and soft points, that says brown to me. Plus, he isn't really a bay shade (bays tend to be more red, while browns tend to be more, well, brown lol).

I would say brown as well
