    I have light brown, or light, yellowish brown, very loose stools, and I have had them for a long time. 

    I read that I should be concerned about "clay colored" or "pale" stools.  Consider me ignorant, but what color is clay?  Gray?  Very Light brown?  Reddish brown? 

    I have the same question for "pale." Do they mean pale brown or pale like white or gray? 

    All the sites seem to copy each other, and all use this phrasing as if it is univerally understood.
