    Oh! From what I can see, I'm thinking he might be a brown rather than a bay, so that might be it.

    I'm fairly sure that he's a bay, he has black legs but there is reddish hairs mixed in as well. I've had him maybe about a month and a half, so im going to wait to decipher what colour he is, but the registration says bay (although misregistrations do happen) :)

    Brown's have lighter around the eyes. Smutty with bay is what it looks like.

    Meant to add that smutty can produce the dark rings as can thin hair. A brown with smutty still has a light ring or streak under the eye plus the darker past that.

    I think it is just that the hair is thin and the skin is showing through similar to the muzzle where the hair is transitions to be finer or non-existent. It is completely normal, unless it is a weird patch caused by some sort of rubbing. In my experience, during the summer and especially in warmer climates, the fine haired areas are more likely to let the skin show.
