Show me your Brown horses!
I'm interested in seeingthe difference between true Brown and Bay or Black horses...I keep imagining Chestnut, but I know that isn't right.

Yaaaay! A brown horse thread!
I am sure I have the brownest brown horse of all the browns that ever lived. When people ask me what colour she is I say "brown" and I often get responses such as "Oh you mean dark bay?" or "is she a liver chestnut?"
Nope just brown, you know, like poop. Completely unadulterated by any white markings or other such 'flash' ha ha.
Here she is:
One where you can see her muzzle:
One where you can see her coat colour and highlights in her tail:
And one where she shows how well she can camoflage in pure dirt:
Dulcinea is a dark bay, though when I saw her a couple of weeks ago she looked almost black, but her muzzle is still brown. I think it's so funny that in the USA we have all these specific names for colors, like cherry bay, light bay, dark bay, seal brown, etc, and on Dulci's German papers is simply says "braun"
Here's another example of bay vs. black. Wyndemere looked black and white during the winter, then brown and white during the summer. You could she wasn't just fading black because she always maintained a mealy muzzle. (The first is winter the second summer)
He was sold to me as a seal bay but his papers just say brown.
Seems I have a passion for plain coloured TB's after thinking back, here are a few more of the ones I have worked with over the years:
Cold Dawn (odd one out with his lil sock in the back there) but a good example of a bay:
Noble Squire, as plain a chestnut as you could find but textbook example of chestnut colouring:
TC, now he is classified as a bay although his muzzle is rather light in colour. Clearly has black points other that (others feel free to give you opinion on his bay-ness or brown-nes):
No such thing as a true black TB so can't help ya with that one, you'll have to ask the Arabian people :wink:
This little guy is bay through and through....only fading he is doing now is fading to grey....but thats his age, not his color lol...
I've had a couple different kinds over the years.
First was Nestor, my old Mini who was a silver bay.
Then this is Biscuit, a bay Appaloosa (i know, he had no spots!:-o)
Then Ebony (one of my best horses) who was a brown
This is Lena, Ebony's first foal with me who was a blood bay like her sire.
And finally this is Chico, my solid black Arab mare:D My ultimate fav color.
My mare looks a lot like TC, but her muzzle is VERY brown right now...almost mule-ish. You can see (in my avatar) when she sheds out that her muzzle is in fact black though.
