Question Is Brandy brown?

So, some of you may know we FINALLY got Brandy's papers! We've always been told she's a liver chestnut, and pretty much everyone else around agrees...But her papers say she's brown. But that's weird...I mean, she's just so red! What color do you guys think she is?







Guess that's enough pics for now, right? :P

LoL. I have no idea what the people were thinking registering her brown. She is far too red. I actually wouldnt even consider her a liver chestnut either. Just a pretty copper color.

She's not even close to brown lol
People often mistake brown horses for black horses, but I have never heard of anyone mistaking a chestnut for a brown

The mane and tail do seem awfully dark for chestnut. Wild bay?

My mare, Marie, has a really dark mane and tail and she is a super red chestnut.

The first shed of the foal coat is often much darker than the color they turn out to be later on- it's quite possible she looked like a dark brown horse as a baby when she got registered.

I don't know much about genetics, but she looks like a chestnut to me... not a brown. I like her markings though, they are the same as my black horses markings sort of (star and snip)
