    confused about my horses colour.. help!?

    Ok, so I thought my filly was a bay when I first got her. Then after reading a thread on here I was sure she is brown, due to the lighter colouring on her nose. But now looking at her yesterday after spending ages grooming off some of that winter coat I noticed some things. One side of her nose goes into a lighter brown and the other half is black. :/
    Also her undercoat is darker, like almost black. So she now has little black spots on her rump lol. Can anyone please clear this up for me?

    Also what would you call her face markings, a strip?

    Need any more pics let me know :)

    I would say she's still a bay. Maybe she's sun-bleaching?

    Anyways for the face and leg

    Face- Oval star and stripe.
    Leg- White pastern

    What season are these photos in? It looks like all summer to me, but I could be wrong.

    How old was she when you got her? Have any pictures of her as a foal?

    She was about 20 months old when I got her and she just turned two this month. And Nah I don't have any pictures as a foal, sorry.
    I was told her sire was simullar colour and had a dark summer coat.

    I'd say by the spreading of her star she shows sabino as well.
