    Maybe but can at the same time tell hat he's not. Now clipped he shows that he's not chestnut or regular bay, and either is he bay roan so think the clipping make it easier to figure out his color.

    Ahhh this is so true I have a friend who rescued an arab halter mare and they had her clipped so short I swear she looked pink was such an odd looking color I imagine the chestnut and pink skin. Reminded you of pepto bismol on hooves.

    Bays can and do look grey-ish when clipped. They have two toned hair shafts.

    Once again, body clipping a horse is not going to give you a correct idea of a horse's color.
