    That would be the best idea.

    I don't think the dam is chestnut. I think she's either smoky brown or smokey black (with smoky black being the likely of the two IMO)

    I wouldn't hazard a guess on her color because of the bad lighting in a stall. I was going off of the comment of the op of her being red.

    It's not really based on the mare herself, but rather that I think this foal is double dilute and that would make mom a single dilute.

    And she looks incredibly dark in the few bad photos with a lot of white. Very easy and very common for horses like that to get registered red based.

    She didn't say she was registered as a red though -

    Whether she's registered as red or her owners just think she's liver. Both are incredibly common especially if she's "liver."

    Foal
    And I can't tell you how many times I've seen "I bred my single dilute to a non dilute what colors can I get?" And out pops a double dilute. I've even seen "I bred two non dilutes what color can I get?" And out pops a double dilute.

    Ill take a foal color over what an owner calls a color or what a registry calls a color because they have proven to be wrong a lot.

    Which is why we're waiting for new pictures.

    And I really can't imagine the scenarios you've put up being so common that you can't tell us how many times you've seen that.
