Brown or Bay
I got her in the middle of summer all bleached out and faded except her black legs and ears. The breeder called her a bay and I assumed she was until her winter coat came in. I have never been around a true brown, but the light muzzle is listed as a trait so now I am wondering what color my horse is. What do you think and how can I tell?

Bays usually have black manes/tails,lower legs and noses. If he's changing colours frequently as time goes by, I'd definitely say brown.

Brown. She has the light red/fawn points on the muzzle, belly, and hindquarters.

Thanks guys! Like I said, I've never been around a brown before lol and trying to look at pics online and compare them to her to figure it out was giving me a headache because of all the variants and interpretations.

Brown can and do have black legs and mane and tail. A bay won't get lighter on the muzzle and flank, brown will.

Very much brown.
And like Chiilaa said, there can be light browns that look very bay with their obvious black points, but are actually brown.

Brown. The coloring of her muzzle definitely pegs her as one.

just for my own curiosity--do you have pics of the parents?

Can i ask why you are wanting to see the parents Cricket?

mainly because the youngster looks a lot like a friends brown with creme (only tested for creme, not brown)...so was curious to see if he had a creme parent or not :)
