What color of Bay would you call Jet?
So I've had a few people tell me jet is weird colored lol :lol:. What color bay would you call him? To me honestly he looks golden orange.
Hi! May I ask what colors his parents were?
I would call him... bay. Although it is interesting how the area around his mouth is so much lighter.
Yup, just bay. Unless they're really dark (to the point that they look almost black), I don't differentiate between "light bay", "red bay", etc. My vet has this girl in his books as a dark bay, but anything else is just a bay to me:
He actually doesn't scream bay to me at all...
Nor does the above pictured "bay".
>_< Why must these colors be so deceiving??
Am I nuts that I don't see bay at all?
I think, a very pretty bay. Maybe mahogany:?, I don't know, but really pretty:-)
I would call him a bright bay.....as he has a chestnut body with black mane and tail.
There is bright bay, blood bay, dark bay.......the first color denotes the color of their coat but they are all bays.
This is our bright bay mare
This is our blood bay gelding
This is our dark bay mare
Ok. I'm going to say this and risk looking like an idiot and will swallow my shame if I am WAY off.
But to me, the OP horse almost looks to be carrying some dun factor. His legs, while having black points, don't scream bay to me. Plus, the shading on the muzzle and behind the legs.
He also looks young, and I know the younger, the more deceiving.
As for the other bay I was in question of, the shading around the muzzle and from what I see behind the legs says brown to me, as that's not an apparent sun-bleached place. But...Bay and Brown haunt me so.
