I have just registered to this forum and I have made a page about my lease horse, but I really started doubting which colour she is. I mostly say it's just dark brown or something, but there were suddenly so many options to chose from... I looked them all up on google and wikipedia, but I'm still not sure if she's just brown (dark bay) or seal brown (wasn't even an option, but I found it on wikipedia; it's not the same as seal bay apparently) or maybe liver chestnut. Some people even call her black, but my 'research' has pointed out that that's not possible because she has lighter hairs around her eyes and muzzle. I also find it hard to tell because in winter her coat is much darker.
I hope there are some experts here who can tell me (although on wikipedia is said that even an experienced eye can't always make the distinction between dark bay and seal brown, but it's worth a shot, right?).
I think these are my best pictures to tell. The first one is with her winter coat and the second with her summer coat.
This is my first topic on this forum, so I'm not sure if I did the attachments right. It's also he first time I use a smaller font
