Is she bay?

Paddy is shedding out and I'm not sure if she's a bay or if she'll be considered something else? She's got a little bit of black on the bottom of her legs. Here's a picture I took of her today, is she considered a bay?

Normal bay IMO. Shes only, what, three months old correct? Betting her legs darken up more.

Yup, only 3 months. I was wondering if they could still darken up. I wasn't sure if they would. I was hoping she'd be a bay and it looks like I may have gotten what I wanted!

to me a bay has black legs, tail, mane, tip of ears and nose. I think your horse does not really have any of those... maybe a bit darker legs. However it's always hard to tell with young horses. She's very beautiful either way =)

Indigo bays are generally born with a creamy buff colour where the black usually is on an adult horse. It sheds in darker with every shed until they are their adult colour.

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.

It's not mud. I thought that at first too, but she has black hairs on the lower legs.
