Thank you! Fingers crossed it stays that color. I can't wait for him to shed out this spring.

Brown is a mutation of bay sho they have the black points but the soft points around the belly,muzzle, and eye are a cinnamon color and notice how her black points blend into her coat.

Roger :) Thank you for the clarification! I've gotten rusty on things I'm embarrassed to admit with the horses. Talk about the good ol' saying "Don't use it you lose it!"

Since this thread has been revived I will add my story.

I had a bay tobiano Spotted Saddle Horse (Dewey), and a double pattern varnish roan/blanket with spots Appaloosa (Elwood).

005_5 dewey and elwood spotted horses.jpg

When people would come to see them, many would say they liked the spotted one. I had them both for some years. I thought most people were familiar with the term Appaloosa. So at first I would think they were talking about Dewey-the SSH, but no it was random.

As time went on my response became: "The one with the big spots, or the little spots?" LOL

The term paint was being used for horses long before there was registered horses. That is were they got the word. I had a paint quarter horse. She had a good balance of brown and white. Also had black in tail and mane. Tho mane also had white going across in the middle. And she had a black ring of hair above every hoof. You can call her a bay. But I call her tri color. Either way a real pretty horse.

I guess, technically, a bay paint would be tri-colored! Black, brown and white.... Sounds tri-colored to me!
