Is she bay?

I am so confused with my filly's color right now, I think she's bay, breeder says she's bay, but then her foal coat is really mixing me up so I don't know... She's bay right? Or is she brown? She was born May of this year.

Thank you, the other thread on bays has me all confused. She doesn't have the high black points on her legs, but I thought she may be wild bay? I suppose her foal coat is throwing me off a bit, her lower legs are still covered with light hair, as are her soft areas, which is what made me think brown, according to explanations in other thread.

She looks bay with pangare, which is how you would get confused with brown.

Brown mealing usually only covers the muzzle, eye area, elbows, flanks, and inner thigh areas. Your filly is light all the way under her belly, an indicator of pangare. I am not too knowledgeable on how pangare acts with the black of bay legs, so without that knowledge she could be either wild bay or normal bay with pangare...just my two cents though.

This, with a clause. Most foals have pangare type effects, but grow out of it. She looks bay to me - I would expect some difference in her foal coat for her to be brown, such as some darker hair along her top-line, and some sootiness to her legs.

Would anyone care to take a guess what other modifiers she carries, if any? Her star has a funny little hook coming off of it, and she has bottom lip white and white hair "snip" although no pink skin under it.

Here is her face last fall...


Recently...


Would it be safe to guess she carries sabino, with chin white, and pointed stockings? And what are the chances she could carry frame? I will more than likely have her tested here in to future. Just trying to learn more :)

I think sabino, yes. As for frame, as far as I am aware it is not in Welshes (about 99% sure on that) and it is definitely not in Arabs. So I wouldn't worry about it.
