What colour is chic?

Chic is a registered Qh. She was registered as a bay but there have been arguments about her colour. She has been called bay, buckskin, silver bay, brown, and many others that im not even sure exist. What do you think?

Brown imo.

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.

Just so you know, a silver bay also has a cream-ish mane and tail Whoever told you that was off their rocker.

I would have to go with dark bay on this mare though

I would say dark bay. She has black legs, mane and tail, seems to have black ears as well as muzzle. In the winter pic it looks like she is showing the modifier pangare sometimes called Mealy. It's not an extremely well understood modifier, but in essence it is the opposite of sooty.
Mealy / Pangare Modifier

Jacksmama, brown (At) horses can and do have black points. The horse in the OP is brown and does not have mealy/pangare.

I also vote for brown.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
