    I figure he's a bay, but I enjoy showing him off, lol... He's such a sweetie! The pic with the flag blanket he has a darker face, but it's even darker this year. But I'll post pics tomorrow. If you forget aboutme I'll just message them to you chiilea. He's filled out so nice! :)

    I won't forget about you - I read every thread in this part of the forum, and usually get to read twice a day - no life, I know lol.

    Is his muzzle paler than the rest of his face?

    Hold on... I'll do digging, but I think it is in the winter, but the very tip turns black?... He turns really red... Its hard to remember the these r the goofy faces he does when I take pics! Then when he hears the click his ears perk up, lol...

    This is his brown half brother. I was braiding and deburring... I didnt take a pic when I finished either!!! I took the picture showing how bad he had the burrs, lol... Not a flattering angle of him either.

    Your bay is like mine. As her winter coat comes in, she gets darker, almost a dark brown/black appearance, especially around her face. I'll have to get some pics and post them.

    Your "bay" is brown in that case.

    Yea, Buck's brother is owned by my mother in law. Him and his brother are browns. I thought they were bays for the longest time. I think that's why I didnt get Buck's coloring. But by time I started pulling out old braids yesterday I couldnt get a good picture. Is Buck (the horse I was asking about) a Bay or a light brown?

    I am leaning toward light brown to be honest.
