I have a friend who has a decidedly BAY Andalusian cross mare (crossed with Friesian and Arabian). But there's a twist.

Mare has a strong, clearly defined dorsal stripe, distinct shoulder barring, face shadowing, and leg barring.

This friend's mare is bright red bay but shows very distinct dun factor markings. But as far as I'm aware, cannot possibly be true dun.

All that being said, I'm feeling sooty red dun from your mare. The pale barrel is exactly the same shade as a friend's red dun QH gelding, and sooty can darken a horse significantly.

I wish I knew what colors her parents were. Ah well.... When I was first talking to my trainer about her she had a 3 year old picture of her in her winter coat on her phone. She looked chestnut (not my fav color). But I fell in love with her face in the tiny pic.....I met her in person and was head over heels in love. I'm glad she has some uniqueness to her coat, not that I'd buy or not buy a horse off strictly color. But she sure stands out in the herd of 6 we have at the barn.

Thanks your all your input. I know nothing of such color & genetics except she was a different color and my brown is a brown because that is what she tested as...even though 98% of the time she looks bay.

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

This is my friends horse Comanche he is a sorry chestnut which I think your horse is as well. He looks bay too people often ask her what color he is.

She looks like a liver chestnut that perhaps has some fading from the sun. By looking at her pasterns, I can see she has no black there, so I think chestnut.
