I would have to say Dark bay or brown, Sliver? Buckskin? I don't see that color at all.

He's a bay. He's got the black points. My bays always shed out lighter in the summer and darker in the winter.

And just out of curiosity, if a brown can have black points, what the heck seperates a bay from a brown? Everything I've EVER been told has told me bays are bays because they are brown with the black points.

It's the little bit of lighter hair at the nose and flank that makes a brown a brown. ND is the Brown Guru though, so she could probably tell you more :)

Chiila pretty much hit that one on the head. Browns are lighter through the stifle area, the elbow area (these two areas are cannot be blamed on sunfading) and around the nose. Browns can and do have black points. The brown color (the afore mentioned lightened areas) used to be thought to be caused by mealy. The brown gene has been discovered and shown to be part and parcel of agouti with bay and wild bay. Normal bay seems to be dominant to brown at this time (who knows what more research will show!), so you can have bay horses produce browns. Pet DNA is the one and only place that has a test for brown and they test only for brown.

Bay, but with her winter coat she does look brown. I have always been taught that a brown horse is so dark they almost look black but they have brown around their muzzle, flanks, and other areas. She's too light to be a brown, in my opinion.

This horse is dark bay.

Brown is my vote.

So many different answers! I have always thought she was a brown but there are days she looks so much like a bay it seems crazy to have thought she was a brown, and vica versa.

She is definitely a brown. Brown can be light - they don't have to be black with the lighter muzzle and flanks. In theory, a brown could be the lightest shade of bay with a lighter muzzle and flank area.
