I like his color and his build. I think he looks like a bay roan though but it could just be the color tones in the picture making him look like he has black points.

Brown and bay BOTH have black points.

^^^ What she said. In the winter I'm sure you can tell that he is a brown, that's how my girl is. There isn't much mistaking it if you know the difference. But I see how you could be confused, I thought my girl was bay until the winter came.

Take lots of pictures over the seasons as he will most likely be an ever-changing color horse for you to enjoy!

He has already made a huge change since I bought him! I love roans

Thanks for this comment, it made me do some research. They've made so many advances in the color genetics and sad to say I don't try to keep up with them since I quit breeding. Now I don't know if my one mare is bay or brown:-?

Brown is often characterized by cinnamon colored hair on the soft points of the horse. This can sometimes only be seen I'm winter. So this coloring will be seen around the eyes, the nose, and flanks.

My friend's yearling is exactly that color .. everytime I go out there, he's different ... love it!

In person I can see the lighter areas in his flanks and behind his front elbows and between his butt cheeks. He is brown!
