    Okay...is Kadija a bay or a brown?? ;D

    I bought her in winter so she had a full winter coat that just looked dark bay. Now she is shedding out and going into an odd goldenish/dapply/light brownish color. She hasn't had time to "sunbleach" as we have barely had any sun! So is she bay or brown? Last pics are from today.

    These pics are from before

    Absolutely bay. Brown horses will on the black muzzle that she does.

    I'm definitely seeing black points, so she has to be a bay.

    Dapples can be a sign of a healthy coat. So I think that might be it.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not an expert.

    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.
