Okay, I'm confused again!
I don't understand the term "brown." The points are still black. The mane/tail are still black. The body is brown. But it's still a bay, correct?
Case in point, here is my old Arabian gelding (in both summer and darker winter coats). I always thought of him as a dark bay. But I since I have joined this forum, I think he is "brown." But he's still a bay, right? Afterall, he has black points.
So anything that is any shade of brown with black points, I call a bay (unless it is something like buckskin of course). So is that correct? Or is "brown" totally something different? And if that is the case, how do you know you are looking at a brown vs. a dark shade of bay?
In other words, is "brown" simply a variation of bay? Or is "brown" NOT a variation of bay?
