    Color questions on my boy.

    This is my boy Atreyu and he is about 14 months old. When I first got my little man I thought he was a bay tagging beside his momma. I have since started to question his bayness for a brown horse. My only problem is that all the refrences I have read say brown horses have black mane and tails well my boy does not. His tail is black but his mane is not. Now will it go black as he ages or do brown horses have colors other than black manes? Or is he a different color? I hope his mane does go black but if it does not I am not kicking him out of the pasture. LOL.

    I'm no expert but I say brown.

    He is brown. The mane is probably lighter due to sun fading. If it means a lot to you, try putting a sheet on him all the time, with a neck cover too.
