Bay Horses

Husbandry topics are items that help the horse owner manage the horses in their care. There are a lot more topics to add, but these will get you started with the basics.
These photos have captions to express any thoughts I have on the picture. The idea here is for YOU to get ideas, so grab a cup of coffee, darken the room, grab a pen and paper to write notes, and sit back and enjoy. I have more shots and I’ll add them later as I have time.

Click on any picture to see it in full size with the captions. Please enjoy and add any questions or comments below.

The bay horse has black legs, tail, and mane and fore top. The rest of the body can be any color from almost black to bright chestnut. Those are called “blood bays.”

Dilutions of the bay include buckskin. The gray gene can also cover up a bay over time but is often confused as a blue roan as a young horse. The difference is that a blue roan will have a solid head while a graying bay will have a head covered with gray hairs.
