Brown can and does have black points. It's a mutation of the bay gene - bay is A, brown is At. Brown restricts black to the points, just as bay does. In addition, it lightens the "soft" points of the horse - the flank, the muzzle, in the elbow, under the tail. All places that the sun won't bleach FIRST on the horse.
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.
