    Couldn't decide what colour to come out??

    Hi all... This is my 17 year old Tb, he is registered as a chestnut but he clearly isn't... Any ideas on what colour he might be?? I've done some research and coming to the conclusion that he might be a silver bay but I've been told the silver gene doesn't exist in the TB line, so just want to know what you all think. :)
    He's chestnut body with black points. Dark mane and tail with very bright flaxen though out. He also has a white blaze and a few white socks etc. Also a white splodge on his cheek but this could have been from an injury when he was a bubby..
    Thanks in advance :)

    He looks chestnut to me, being darkened by sooty. His legs get lighter just before the hoof, a very clear signal to me that he is chestnut.

    He has black points...

    Didn't think chestnuts had black points or black manes?

    I can see in the last photo that his black points don't continue to the hoof, instead it gets lighter again. That is a chestnut trait. And yes, chestnuts can have black in their mane or tail, as I said, sooty can do all sorts of funky things.

    ... It doesn't... it just looks like it in the photo.

    If the photos are deceptive, then why are you using them for us to tell you his colour? Try some better photos - mid afternoon sunlight, maybe overcast day if possible, relatively minimal shadowing, in focus.

    I second the chestnut vote. The second picture is the closest to looking anything other, but it's clear in the others that he is certainly chestnut. And very pretty.

    But most definitely NOT bay and not silver.
