Question Adopted A Rescue Horse Justice *ROAN?*

I adopted this horse. Payed for an eye removal and after she healed for a couple weeks brought her home. She was starved and beaten. The owner was who crushed her eye in. She always had other horses with crushed eyes.
I have watched her get healthier. She is the biggest sweetheart anyways, I can not figure out what kind of roan she is. I am pretty sure she is a roan.

Here are some pictures. First are some of her in the summer when she was still gaining weight and then slowly moving to winter as she got darker.

Just looking at her legs I would say Chestnut. Then I get confused because her main and tail seem to dark. I have never seen a chestnut roan with that dark of a main and tail and face. Sorry if I am just pretty stupid with roans lol they confuse me. Maybe she isn't even a roan?

They lady that had her and others had bred her and a few other mares to a fewspot Appy.

Also the blanket she has on was what she came with from the rescue. I got her a new one. That on rubbed her shoulders. I hated it.

Yep, liver chestnut. Possibly sooty, but the mane color looks to match her neck/body color in her winter/less roaned coat, so sooty's not necessarily present.

Poor girl... no horse should have to suffer that kind of abuse Glad she found her way to you, though!
