In my experience, some blacks can fade and look like maybe a bay, sometimes called black bay but they are still black as genetic tests will come out "black" they just fade in the sun.

I used to confuse Cinny and think maybe he really was bay or brown but the gurus here say no, he's def black... especially since his winter coat, and his coat if it doesn't get too much sun stay jet black. Not to confuse you, but here is what he looks like faded.

Both correct. You can see the first horse in this thread.

Ruester's variation of colors

As you can see by his winter pics, definitely brown

My boy is brown... can't see it in his summer coat but in the winter coat he is DEFINITELY much lighter around the muzzle.

Summer coat (old photo, terrible saddle, so excuse my position!):

Winter coat (you can sort of see it here, it's a lot lighter in real life):
