She is chestnut.

a chestnut is a chestnut is a chestnut.

She has a flaxen gene making her mane and tail lighter. And she does appear to have a "liver" body. So if you really want to get technical...call her a flaxen liver chestnut.

she is very pretty! Love her face!

Thanks! I was just SOOOOO confused about all the "technical" names. We are having trouble with the whole registering process with the AQHA because she keeps "changing colors". One representative told us to call her a liver chestnut... one told us to call her a flaxen chestnut. Honestly, i don't really care She's a chestnut.

OK. One more question for you color experts... Do all liver chestnuts have the flaxen(ish) mane/tail? Because my friends horse is one... and he doesnt have a lighter mane/tail (or at least she tells me he is one..) That is one of the reasons i was kind of confused about the color

No, not all liver chestnuts have flaxen. Its whatever combination of genes that were inherited from the sire/dam that will determine the outward appearance of the horse.
