Q. My horse is Black, but it says Bay on my certificate?
N.Q.H.R registers, a horse's color based on genetic history and/or record of offspring. Most horse owners do not realize the genetic difference between a dark bay and a true black. If your horse has gold on its nose or flanks it is very likely not genetically a black.
