What type of bay is my horse?

I know their are tons of shades of bay and I was wondering what shade everyone thinks he is specifically. Blood bay? Or what? Thanks everyone
I put some pictures so you could see his coat clearly up close.

I've heard it called blood bay or bright bay. My old gelding was a very similar color and I always called him a bright bay.

I've always thought of blood bay as much deeper, like liver coloured. Yours looks like a bright bay, and a very nice one too.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.
