Bay horse in winter...
I want to see pictures of a bay horse in winter coat- and maybe summer too to compare with pictures of brown horses in their winter coats.
If anyone has pictures to show of their bay or brown horses in winter, that you would like to share. I would like your pictures, not google pictures, of yours or your friend's horse.

Thanks :)

I've also been super confused after the recent threads about bay horses actually being brown...
But, I don't have a bay/brown horse, so I'm just going to sub, and hope it gets clearer for me too!

My horse get's brown when it's winter, when she she sheds out, she turns to cherry bay
Also she has random white hairs, they disappear in the winter

First three pictures are my boy in the winter/early spring, and the last two are the same horse in the late spring/summer.

He is considered "Bay". He has black legs, and a white star. It's funny how he changes so much in appearance.

Randella, your horse is brown.

On his papers it says bay.

Registries are notoriously wrong. My BOs just sold a "Blue roan" according to the AQHA. She was the definition of brown. There is also another member who has a mare registered as bay...and is most definitely black.

Out of curiosity, what registry body is he registered with?

Most registries don't accept "brown" as a color, they classify them as bay. My TB mare is brown but registered as a dark bay.
