Bay or Brown?
Is she bay or brown?
Brown. 100% without a shadow of a doubt.
I'm not a pro with colors, but Im thinking she would be seal brown.
Seal brown and brown are the same thing. She is most definitely brown.
I know you guys are tired of explaining why bay or brown, but tell her so the OP knows why? Just like I learned from reading your posts. The softer points are brown and that makes her a brown?
Yes. Bay and brown are caused by the agouti gene on a black gene. Agouti restricts the black to specific areas. "A" agouti is bay, which restricts black to the legs, tail, mane, muzzle, and ears. "At" is brown, which restricts black very similarly, but lightens certain areas: muzzle, around the eyes, flank, elbow. "Soft areas" that will not be faded by the sun.
Browns are also far easier to identify during the winter because their coat changes dramatically from summer to winter.
I say brown too. I only just learned the difference between bay and brown a few months ago and it was from the very knowledgeable folks on here when they pointed out that my mare is brown. :D
So, this mare would be brown as well, then? Thanks for the help :lol:
lol.. If I saw that horse in the bottom pic I would say Bay.
