So I think my horse is a black bay...he was sold to me as a black...but he bleaches out way to much in the summer to be a true black in my opinion. He literally looks bay in the summer. I've seen a few true black horses that were left out pastured all the time. They would bleach but never this much...my only discretion with calling him a bay it his main an tail...they have a few bleached out brown hairs...his tail litterally looks almost orange around the top... I thought that it took alot for a bay horses main an tail to bleach out...they are usually solid black...so im highly confused...he just changes color all the time...he is black head to foot in the fall an spring...he looks black but slightly faded in the winter...accept this year cause I've rugged him up the entire time...he looks bay in the summer...cause his tail changes so much by the end of summer he looks sorta half bay half chestnut...anyway like I said I think Black Bay...but I would like opinions...ill post the best pictures I have from different times of the year.
The first three are mid summer, fourth end of summer, fifth winter, sixth spring.
