My instructor's going to get so mad when I tell her her horse isn't a bay.

Bubba is a little difficult to distinguish in the summer whether he is bay or brown, but he screams brown in his winter fuzzies. During the summer, his "soft points" are more of a mealy color rather than a lighter brown which make it more difficult to tell.

Here he is about a week ago:

Here he is last winter in his woolies:

I'll see if I can dig up any of my bay Missouri Fox Trotter (RIP) and scan them in.

He's registered with CTHS (Canadian Thoroughbred Society).

Not my horse. What do you think of this one? I'm on my phone, but to me it looks pretty uniform in color without the lighter points in the usual places.

It's looks like less of a brown than the others. On my laptop, I had a picture of a typical brown arabian in winter coat, and it showed a great example of the lighter soft spots, but I'm on a work computer :/

I would call that horse a bay. Maybe a second opinion would help.

Brown is probably less confusing for people who have no interest in horses. Anytime I describe a horse as bay to a non-horsey person I then have to explain what bay is...
