Correct Color Please...

To start...this is not my's a Mustang and the picture is from the Pryor Mountain website. I have had a random inspiration to write a series of hopefully young adult novels about horses and Mustangs in particular and for the horses in the series, I am scouring the internet for pictures that inspire me...he is one of them...

To make sure I have it correct in the book, would I describe him as seal brown, brown, a very dark bay? I can't make up my mind and the longer I stare, the more confused I become. TIA...

If I have more questions about others, I'll just add them to this thread to keep from junking up the forum.

Dark bay or brown

I would call this colour, Dark Bay.

I'd say he's brown.

He is for sure a brown.

Thanks guys. I'm sure if I keep going with this project you'll see another post on this thread soon.

Yup, he's brown, hence the lightness around his muzzle and flank area.
I have a mare coloured much like him.
Cute boy!

Definitely a brown due to the light coloring in muzzle/flank area. Bays don't exhibit that.

Seal brown/dark brown.

In a dark horse like that, which has the lighter fading, how can you tell a sun-bleached black compared to a brown? I've never owned a black horse, but I have known people that stalled their black show horses to keep them from fading. My uneducated eyes begin wondering if the horse could be black and faded, but I'm sure that's WAY wrong. Or does the fading on the muzzle be the sign to look for?
