What colour is chic?
3 Attachment(s)
Chic is a registered Qh. She was registered as a bay but there have been arguments about her colour. She has been called bay, buckskin, silver bay, brown, and many others that im not even sure exist. What do you think?

looks like a black bay to me. In the summer she looks bleached out though

Brown imo.

Brown IMO as well.

Just so you know, a silver bay also has a cream-ish mane and tail :D Whoever told you that was off their rocker.

I would have to go with dark bay on this mare though

I would say dark bay. She has black legs, mane and tail, seems to have black ears as well as muzzle. In the winter pic it looks like she is showing the modifier pangare sometimes called Mealy. It's not an extremely well understood modifier, but in essence it is the opposite of sooty.
Mealy / Pangare Modifier

Jacksmama, brown (At) horses can and do have black points. The horse in the OP is brown and does not have mealy/pangare.

I also vote for brown.

Poseidon 05-11-2011 09:16 PM

I also agree with brown.
