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. She's 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!

Im not sure. She has really unique coloring lol Like there is some white in her tail...and white socks. Is that mud on her legs?

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.

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