I'd say fading black as well she could be a really dark brown though. Also I just wanna say I love this horse's build before I scrolled down to see all the pics I was thinking Barrel Horse!

I also vote fading black. :) the striped on her chest is probably from where she sweats and beaches like the other posts of her body. Very nice horse!

No expert, but in the pic of her saddled I would say dark bay or brown. Guess you coudl do the dna test for an accurate answer ;)

In the summer my bfs black tb can look bay because he bleaches so bad.

Sorry :)...I go with dark bay. She has the black points on her legs (black below the knee), black mane and tail. In the first pic you can see the color change going down her legs...very dark brown, nearly black on top but there is a definite darkening lower down.

Dark bays do not always fade. I had one that faded into an almost chestnut color; I actually put him on a coat darkening supplement. My last horse, also a dark bay, didn't fade at all.

Really won't know for sure until you do a DNA test. I suspect either fading black or a really dark bay with a lot of smutty. If it was brown I would expect light points around muzzle and other soft areas which I don't see - other than sweat lightening on the neck and back.

As to vets and color - most vets aren't even aware that "brown" is an acceptable color option. It used to be either bay or black. Their main priority is the health of the horse rather than its color.

Fading black IMPO. The fading is being acerbated by sweat - it looks very clearly like it matches where your tack sits. Sweat will cause a coat to bleach, as will the sun.

I vote fading black as well, he doesn't have the lighter color muzzle from what I can tell. My black horse is currently so bleached out, I think he's actually lighter than my bay horse.
