Breed and colour?

Can anyone help me out with this horses breed and colour? He's not mine but I ride him and look after him, unfortunately I don't know very much about telling horses apart in terms of specific breeds or colours so if anyone could help me that'd be great

Maybe he's just a dark bay? I'm not great with color. He looks pretty TBish to me...

He's a bay with a white star on his forehead and white rear pasterns. The picture is not enough to tell the breed -- would help to know how tall he is in hands. If he isn't your horse, why not ask the owner what breed he is?

Information on basic colors and markings of horses is very widely available. Bay is one of the most common colors. Essentially it is a reddish brown of any shade, with black 'points' -- legs, mane, tail. White markings are inherited separately from the basic color of the horse.

Technically-speaking, this horse is not bay, but is brown. Brown presents similarly to bay, but also makes the soft points of the horse (muzzle, flanks, point of buttocks, under elbow) a soft cinnamon color.

My bad. He's a seal brown. But in summer everyone will think he's a bay.
