Black tobiano, bay tobiano (or brown, would need a better photo) and chestnut. In order from top photo to bottom photo. Though unless your mare is tested I'd tend to say brown for her because of the light flank... classic marker for brown!

Her hair is really short, and you can see skin through it.. We're working on that. I have not had her long.. but she's a super easy keeper. That is all grass. (=
Thank you so very much (=

I still think she looks brown to me, that lighter colour around the flanks is telling. Or MAYBE smokey black... maybe.

I see brown too, but the photo isn't great.

Just a note - a horse can be homozygous for black and still be bay or brown

Listen to Chiilaa... she is amazing.

And re the homozygous black thing - SO TRUE. I wouldn't be surprised if one of my two was homozygous for black and neither of them are actually black. One is bay, the other buckskin.
