    It would be genetically incorrect. You could maybe get away with 'seal bay' lol. Most folk don't know there is a difference between bay and brown anyway. I still call Reno bay (until I test him)...or just mud. Reno is a mud horse XD

    My morgan is, as Reno properly explained, a true bay - her shade never changes, and she has the appropriate black points (mane, tail, legs)..... Of course it was pre-dawn when I snapped this photo, so you can't really tell, unfortunately!

    When you have a horse genetic tested/typed, whatever it is, what do they do and what do they find out?

    You yank a good few hairs (30ish preferably, WITH the root/tag attached) and send them in. I don't know exactly how they run the tests, but they know what to look for. The comprehensive agouti test tells you if the horse has any recessive 'a' and if they have any brown agouti 'At'. Anything that isn't 'a' or 'At' is bay agouti 'A'.

    If you get results back for your horse and it's 'AA', 'AAt', or 'Aa' your horse is bay. 'AtAt' or 'Ata' is brown. 'aa' is no agouti. Confusing, I know.

    Foal
    Lime green, purple, and turquoise are gorgeous on bays! My friend has a bay mare and has a lime green saddle pad, and also a turquoise one with green trim, and both look fantastic on her!

    I use hunter and navy on him for English. I was thinking a deep purple. Turquoise would probably look pretty too.

    Foal
    If you gravitate more towards the Obnoxious shades.....Yellow, Blaze Orange, Lime green and teal are all good looking.

    I have a Brown Morgan mare that in summer could pass for bay, and I have her decked out in yellow & lime green.
