Brown

Can someone please tell me the difference between Bay and Brown?

And also, is there a difference between Black-Brown and Bay-Brown?

Well, for bay and brown:

Bay: the horse is a chestnutty color or darker with black socks, mane/tale and sometimes muzzle.

Brown: well, if you look at Piaffes thread, that foal is a fine example of brown.

Thank you.

So, Bays have dark points and Browns don't?

Well... You seen what browns are.. Some can have different ... Color ... Patterns. They will always be that color, but they can have their dark points, but not as noticiable as bays. I used to have a brown that had darker legs then the coat pattern, and my friends horse ATM has darker mane and tail then the coat pattern. ( he's a brown )

Oh okay, so, Bays have darker points that are noticably darker than the rest of their coat. And Browns can come in a range of tones, have some faint dark points?
