Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

This is an interesting discussion, and educational! - I have a true bay Morgan, with all the dark points required, and then acquired her half-sister in Sept. (same dam/different sire) who is a "liver chestnut" Morgan, a shade of which I've never seen until now. Nothing surprises me! :)

He's already grown quite a bit of winter fuzz since we bought him on Sept.15 which is when this picture was taken. And he's definitely lighter around the muzzle. I'll have to revisit this thread when he's completely grown out his coat.

Now what about my mare in the pics I posted previously. She's the more classic bay I guess. You can't see it in the pic because she's saddled but she also has a pretty decent dorsal stripe that is more obvious in the summer. What does that mean in a bay? Our dark bay doesn't have that.

And she's half paint (her dam was a sorrel tobiano, her sire was an appendix)
