    I believe that her 'bay' appearance in the summer time is likely due to sun bleaching.

    This horse is a dark brown, almost black with a touch of the rusty brown at the muzzle and flanks.




    This is the lightest horse I have seen that I suspect is brown as opposed to bay. There is lightening at the muzzle, and it seems to be lighter at the flank too. ND would be the expert and could probably call it, even with such a bad photo lol.

    Brown gets my vote too. She is mealy in spots and there isn't a sharp enough contrast between the black points & coat color for me to call her bay. I have 4 bays myself. Check out my buddy Woodstock in my barn & look at the stark difference, in his legs in particular.

    MH - brown can have the distinct difference in leg and body colour. That's what can cause so much confusion :)

    *blushes* I am no expert. I just like learning about horse colors.

    And yes the real kicker is brown can and does have black points as opposed to having just darker "brown" points. Bays can also have lighter points that are not stark black in appearance. Like anything there are a lot of different shades of colors. Lol

    I realize that browns can have black points & darker brown. Just seems too blended all over to me I guess...struggling to put thoughts into words

    I think I get what you are saying. >.< Trying to work and surf here doesn't work so great some time.

    You're trying to say that there isn't the delineation between the dark points and body color on a brown like there is a on a bay?
