    Oooh, if we're doing pictures of bays, here's mine. Thoroughbred X Dutch Warmblood. Sorry about the poor quality pic, just snapped the print on my wall.

    Just found an old photo of my mare to compare to your boy. She looks paler to me but it could be light/time of year. She was registered with the Cleveland Bay Society and the certificate shows her breeding - I’d say your boy defo has some Cleveland there ;)

    My Paddy has. He's like a big dog and extremely affectionate.

    Looking at your mare, I can see such a strong likeness. I know Paddy is a Thoroughbred cross, but I don't know what cross and I have never been able to trace his background.

    I rescued him in 2002, as an eight year old and I know he came from the Leicester area. He is registered somewhere as Mr. Mannering, or Mr. Mainwaring, but I don't know where.

    I believe his sire was a Chaser.

    I was always of the impression that with a black mane and tail, that horse would be dark bay. If mane and tail are also dark brown, then the horse is described as dark brown (which is far less common than dark bay - in fact I think I've only ever seen one).

    My mare was apparently classed as True Bay as she had no white on her at all with black mane, tail lower legs and hooves.
