"Blood" bay is just a name that you can give to a particular shade of bay. It's not anything unusual or special, it's just a name. Like "liver" chestnut or "isabella" palomino.

With your mare, I would instead be wondering if she is brown and not bay - she has the typical lightening of the soft points in winter coat.

Im bad with colors. But the only spot of the light soft spots I see are the muzzle .
She dosnt really show lightspots in her armpit area. But then again I don't have a better photo reference for winter.
Do you know anyother ways to tell if she's a brown are a bay?

In this photo, you can see the paler area around her muzzle, which is a start. Have a look around her eye - can you see that too? And then compare the inside of her right fore, with the outside of her left fore - the inside is lighter than the outside.

I had a gelding that was a typical bay until after I vacuumed him. I was amazed at how red his coat was. It didn't appear red after a bath, only when vacuumed.

She's a bay, no doubt. The light brown muzzle does not always indicate a brown horse.

Blood bay I consider to be "brighter". This mare, for example, I consider a blood bay. You'll notice that your mare is much darker, and has the "shading" around her shoulders/neck area, whereas this mare is a uniform light shade all around - and they still don't really show her real colour.

Even in winter:

But it is one of those tomatoe or tomato things.
