Do bays have stripes?

Slowly but surely I'm cleaning Cookie up. Under the grime I have managed to get off her so far I found these stripes. Do bays have these stripes?

I apologize for the quality of the pics, easier for me to carry my iPod then my big camera lol and I hope they aren't huge I'm uploading them using my iPod too.

Hmm, that's interesting. I'm no expert in coloring, but it could just be the appy shining through? Or a dun with tiger stripes?

Is she registered bay? Because to me she looks like a dun or red dun.

No she's registered dun but I wasn't sure and after posting some pics of her the general consensus was bay. She's lighter in person than the pics show.

When I found the stripes today I thought it odd but I'm not all that knowledgeable when it comes to anything bit basic horse colors. But then I thought duns had to have the dorsal stripe as well?

I'm excited to see what she'll look like when she's put some meat on and in the summer after she sheds these woolies!

She looks like a bay-dun/dun to me.

Also be aware that appaloosa coloring genes can and will mess with how a color looks. I believe Eastowest has a stud, or pictures of a stud, that does not look like what his genes say he should.

Looks like dun markings for sure. He has the shoulder strips as well as zebra stripes on his legs.If it werent for the blanket, he'd probably have the dorsal as well.

She does have some dark on her spine, but it's not constant and I think it's spots. Of course, I can't tell what are spots and what's a scab or rain rot yet *sigh* I'll see eventually though lol.
