Smile What color is this appy gelding?

This is my neighbor's granddaughter's appy gelding Playboy, we're all wondering what color he is, sometimes he looks bay, sometimes brown, and other times black. I have both their permisson to post these pics, they want to know as much as I do! Pics were taken today. Btw Playboy is 13 years old.

Does he change color season to season?

I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say brown with a blanket. Browns are notorious for changing color like you describe. My best friend's gelding is brown and some seasons he looks black, others he looks almost burgandy, and others he's a medium bay.

He stays the same color from season to season, only in winter he looks almost black, then when he starts shedding his winter coat he looks either bay or brown.

Then he changes colors. Lol. If he looks black one season and bay/brown the next, that's changing color. Which means he's a brown.

I'm torn between calling him a brown and calling him a fading black. I'd say he's definitely not a bay though.

If he was fading black, I'd expect his mane and tail to be sunbleached and they're not.

I should've mentioned his mane and tail always stays black year around. I didn't think he was bay either, I was thinking either black or brown, but now i'm leaning more towards brown.

In this picture, you can see a slight mealiness to the muzzle area on the right - it is covered by the white pattern on the left. Brown it is
