    Appy bay points often, if not usually, turn brown prior to coloring out in varnish roans.

    Here is Rambo, a bay, at an intermediate stage where some of his black points have turned brown or are turning brown, although his mane is still mostly black at this juncture.



    In this later picture, a closeup taken to show a corneal ulcer he had, note how the mane has changed from black to brown prior to changing to white, which is what it is now...

    I can still see the dark points on that appy even though they have lightened on his legs and ears. Look closely at the OP's horse see how his points get lighter toward the hoof definitely Chesnut.

    My friends sooty Chestnut appy. See how he gets lighter at the points even though his legs are dark from the sooty gene.


    My old bay varnish roan blanket appy still can see his black points towards the bottom of his legs

    Face it's not so much that the legs don't get darker, rather than they get lighter. If you look at the OP's horse, there is a very definite reddening as you move down the leg, particularly under the fetlock. That is a chestnut trait, not a bay one

    Perhaps, although I'm not convinced...

    OP, get your horse tested...
