Well I said I wasnt going to get anymore horses but I fell off the wagon and this little filly is a rescue situation she is just 4 mths old mother is emaciated litteralyy a bag of walking bones baby is way to thin unhandled they put a halter on her at 1 week old and never adjusted it so it was starting to be ingrown I was going to go look at her to politely decline her they offered her to me free after I had done a perm for their 90 yr old mother and I went to look and decline then I seen the mare and her I couldnt leave her in that situation. They had another mare she was in great condition but their pasture was nothing been really dry here they had just gotten a round bale but it looked like crap hay to me so I agreed to take this wild thing and I gave them 6 round bales of good hay her face is healing she's been here a few days now still wild, her fetlocks are a mess due to lack of nutrition the vet and I have her on a good diet and hopefully she will recover she is hancock/two eyed jack bred but no papers so she is a grade but with that breeding she'll make one hell of a using horse.
At this point in time with those pictures, and the crappy situation/health wise it really screws with coats. I would wait until her winter coat comes in then take and post some new pictures. That should give time for her coat to be healthier and winter is the best time to tell bays from browns.
I have some better shots of her today. Eating grass I'm going to assume her first real taste of it lol pretty sure she likes it. Oh and she's leading perfectly in 2 days she had been unhandled since she was a week old when 6 wrestled her to put on that halter so she's pretty wild.
Ware .. it depends. I think when there used to be just "blue roan" and "red roan" .. bay fell into the red category. I always hated that because the legs, mane and tail were black. It's my fav! I think now they recognize blue, bay, brown, chestnut roan.

I would extend this to say that "blue" roan is also a term we should dump. Call it black roan like everything else
