Do you know what color his parents are? Because the hint of black on his knee on the front left leg makes me think he's bay or brown, not chestnut.

I lean towards bay, too. Mane and tail are too dark. Apart from the black hint on the leg.

From the Pintabian Registry website:

Colored Division
Horses registered in this division are Pintabian horses. They possess the desired tobiano markings and are over 99% Arabian in blood (but are less than 100% Arabian as purebred Arabians do not come in the tobiano pattern). To qualify for registration in this division, at least one parent must be a tobiano. Four colored photos (one each of the front, rear, right and left sides) must be submitted to the PHRI along with a completed Application for Colored Division Application form and appropriate fee when registering Pintabian horses.

I've seen a lot of horses advertised as Pintabian and seen very few who actually meet this definition of a true Pintabian.

Dreamcatcher - Thanks! No wonder they want big money for them when you do see one ;)

Poseidon and desert - I don't know his dam or sire's color. But I'm betting I could find out. I'm just not sure if I could rely on the color info to be correct. I'll give it a try though. I noticed that spot and wasn't sure if that meant anything or not.

I'm leaning towards him being bay with a rather sunfaded mane and tail. A chestnut could easily have a darker mane and tail like that, but it would be uncommon for that spot on the leg to be that much darker like that. Red horses' legs get lighter as you go down.

Okay thanks - I'll do some digging. Eventually I'd probably send off some hairs when I have some spare cash laying around.

I have to say this stuff is fascinating!

Oh wow, I didn't notice the whole "chestnut" thing. No, he is definitely bay.

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.

Hey I know next to nothing about colour genetics.
The only one thing that I do indeed know for certain and that is written in stone is if NDappy or Chillaa say it is a bay it is a bay.
From the hand of G-D to the mind of Chilla and NDAppy as it is written so shall it be. Shalom

I am laughing so hard, and blushing all at once right now. Who needs coffee to perk them up in the morning, just send DB right in there
