Po, Chiillaa, NdAppy....your help please!

So I have 2 horses that I know without a doubt are 100% brown. But I also have 3 that I sway back and forth on. Hoping you can confirm one way or the other for me before I drive myself completely insane!

First is Flirt. I am 95% certain he is brown...His mum definitely is and I am pretty sure his dad is too...

Second is Fanta. I have zero idea of her parents colours...This photo really shows her soft points. Brown or pangare??

And last is Hugo. Again no idea of parents. (Seriously, every photo of him in winter coat without a rug on he is a mudball, sorry!)

Looking forward to hearing your opinions!

Brown (and sexy), brown (and gorgeous), bay (and mud) IMO. Hugo may be wild bay - have you got other photos in more normal (less golden) light?

Yay, so it looks like my initial instincts were right! So if that's the case it puts me at 4 browns, 1 bay and a black.

I forget how big Flirt has actually gotten! Yes, I agree that he and Fanta are brown. I love Fanta's shade. I'm creeping your fb for more pictures of Hugo right now though.

ETA: Huge looks just bay to me. I don't think wild bay. Also, your horses have incredibly shiny coats. Not sure if you're aware. :P

Whoops, Chiilaa must have missed the last part of your post. I'm pretty certain Hugo's black comes all the way to his knees/hocks (funny how when the horse isn't right in front of you these things are forgotten, haha) but will post another photo later.

Po, you creeper :P. So another vote for brown, brown, bay then. Is it sad that Iam so relieved to have an answer to such an inconsequential question.

Oh, yes, sometimes when the sun hits them the glare is blinding, but I don't know why, haha. They are only fed hay and pasture and get groomed only when the mood strikes!

If Po has been creeping, then I very much trust that she is correct in him not being wild bay

I'm going out shortly to turn everybody in to horses that look like somebody actually loves them (I think normal people call that a good grooming?), will try to remember to take another photo of Hugo, just for interests sake anyway.

Oh, and that particular photo of Flirt is 8 months old or something ridiculous like that. He's about a gagillion times that size now, or at least that's what it feels like. He's about 16.1 and weighs in around 600kg now. A far cry from the 14.1ish, 370kg yearling I brought home!

O.O Holy crap.

I know all three of you guys are genius. There is another brown or bay debate on another thread. I think we were sure that my gelding was light brown, but they were saying a horse with the exact coloring was pangre and bay... I just don't have the eye for it. You guys r just crazy smart!

Hugo today, he was being a dingbat and wouldn't stand with his head straight forward, so this is as good as it gets. Definitely not wild bay though!
