That was my first reaction too! I was looking at horses for sale just scrolling scrolling scrolling.. "Hm, that's a cute bay.... WHOA!" Lol I had to fight off other buyers too but I snatched her up!

We call her "Otter" :)

I'd say she could possibly be wild bay. This "wild bay stops at the pasterns," sure when it does we say 100% its wild bay, but we don't have a genetic test for it so how can we say 100% its not?

His points are definitely not full like a normal bays are. And really look at brown. They can go anywhere from looking almost identical to a bay, to looking almost black. How can we say that wild bay 100% looks like X every single time?

There is currently no test for wild bay at all.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Oh! How does testing work? Is there not like a general "what color is my horse" test or do you just test for specific genes?

**edit.. Did some quick googling.. I figured it out :)

You test for specific genes
