    Hes bay, right?

    I read a forum earlier and it was talking about how bays can look like browns. ( I have no idea on colors, other than what some look like and what can sometimes breed what.)
    But brown confuses me. Alot. My boy is a bay, right?
    (the first two are from august, at our week long fair and the last two are from april, when I first got him. )





    Thanks.

    Yup he's bay. He's bay because he has black points and black mane and tail

    On the one forum it said browns can have same characteristics, and it had pictures of browns that had black points too..
    Unless I misread it..

    No, browns can have dark points too. But it's usually in certin seasons. I THINK he's brown, but not positive.

    I agree with jess93 and think he's bay.

    I'd say brown but that's me. There is brown going all through the black on the legs and the ears/points themselves don't appear black - they're brown with black edges which imo doesn't really count as black points.

    I'm, of course, not an expert in any way.

    I have a horse with the same exact coloring and he is registered as a bay. His color does not change. I have heard that bays do not have to have solid black legs. My horses registry agreed he is a bay so.....interesting subject though.

    Being in the sun would make the black darker than normal, right?
    Cause he's literally been out every day this summer and weve had barely any cloudy/rainy days.
    And yeah, he only has trimming on his ears.
    ;_; I know nothing.
