OMG I KNOW! I just read one site that said a brown will have little to NO RED! (So I thought, my gelding is VERY red, so he's a bay!). I continue looking at sites and came across another that shows a dark brown saying to note THE RED AREAS?!?! (DIDNT THE LAST SITE JUST SAY THEY HAD LITTLE TO NO RED?). Pangre mealy creamy colors under flanks, eyes, muzzle, etc... (my boy had that too... but not really as light as I would think as pangre. It's noticeable, but not really cream).... I THINK he is a copper bay with heavy countershading.... I think, lol.... I mean he is REALLY RED in the winter and in the summer when it bleaches he turns a copper color (golden red).

They were talking that browns TURN copper bay after the sun bleaches them out in the summer, but my horses BROTHER (by another mother, lol... really is his half brother, tho...) IS a seal brown and he never looks copper.
