About: Bay Horse Coats
Bay horses are a variation of Black horses (black gene coding located on MC1R). The Bay gene is called ASIP, and it’s controlled by the Agouti locus gene, expressed as A or a.
When a horse is going to be black, the genotype would be E/E or e/E or E/e. From there, the Bay gene determines whether the black or bay color is expressed as the phenotype.
