Okay! I couldn't stand it anymore. This evening while our three "bays' were eating, I'm moving around each giving them the old eyeballs in an attempt to see if I could tell what color they really are. And they are glancing at me with a "What IS her problem" look back.
I believe the mares are bay...probably. One is mahogany and the other (see avatar) has far less red and is a couple of shades lighter. Both muzzles are lighter with the winter coats but no light body tones behind the front legs or in the flank.
The tobiano Paint gelding (thank goodness half his head is dark or I would be sunk) has a lighter muzzle and a lot of light around the eye. What body color he has is more of a walnut tone. So, may I be correct in thinking he may be brown? He has black in this mane and tail making him three colors with the dreamiest blue eyes.
I find it so interesting what one actually sees when looking for something specifically. Education is a wonderful thing.
I will take photos later this spring when we have summer coats.
I'm still going to call them all bays, just because it's easier!
