Doesn't mean I will stop educating the masses

I hear you though. Australia is very much like the UK in colour terms. If I had a dollar for every time I heard skewbald, or someone called a buckskin a dun, or a grey a roan...

I did try the discussion over here, but really no-one was interested. As said many times, you wont get the Irish to stop calling the connemaras "duns" even though I don't think the gene is in that breed.

Cool discussion. My bays are all over the place on paper. I have a bay that looks very much like the OP's bay (he is gorgeous by the way), but she is actually a registered solid paint. So to the eye I guess she's a classic bay? And then just a few weeks ago we added to our equine family. He's a registered quarter horse with dark bay on his papers. So is he a brown with black hard points like someone mentioned or do I call him a dark bay? He even gets very subtle dapples in the summer time. I like his color.

I definitely wouldn't call your horse brown. Brown (or seal bay) looks mostly black, with bay points.
He looks like a pretty standard bay to me~

Not necessarily. Brown/seal bay/ seal brown can come in varying shades, from dark to light. The tip off is the lighter areas along the muzzle, flank, eyes, etc. and it's definitely a lot easier to identify those points when the horse is darker. The mare in my avatar is brown and because of her dark colour, the lighter "cinnamon" coloured points on her muzzle, etc. are easy to see, but there are plenty of other brown horses that are lighter than her.

^I should have said typically. I am aware that there is variation in all horse colors.

My very obviously wild bay is registered as a chestnut. I guess if you solely looked at the lack of black on his hind legs above his stockings you MAY be able to say that... but you'd have to neglect the black mane and tail as well :P
