    What type of Bay?

    Well I know he's a bay - but there's definitely something else going on! He's almost a year old now - Welsh X - don't know the dad, maybe TB or QH, the mom is a very traditional looking red bay.

    It's like he has black dapples on top of a red coat, but also light colored soft spots.

    I would probably say he's a brown, not a bay due to the lightness in the soft spots. Winter will definitely show you.

    There aren't different types of bay; people just add descriptive words before the word to make it sound more special than it is.

    He could just be a darker shade of bay, or he could be brown like mentioned. He doesn't scream brown to me now, but I'd like to see a picture of his winter coat.

    He is a cute dark bay .

    I agree with the brown.

    He looks seal brown to me, especially since he has a tan muzzle and tan behind his elbows.

    From wiki: " The genetically and visually similar dark bay coat color, which also features black points and a near-black body, differs from true seal brown in the absence of these true tan markings. "

    Thanks everyone I guess I couldnt tell whether he was seal brown or sooty bay - but I guess the tan answers that!

    I am interested in different colors, so what others are saying is that he could look like this when he grows up? (not my pick taken off a grooming site)
