I agree with NdAppy.. After seeing the other pictures I'm positive your horse doesn't carry a cream, champagne, or "satin" gene. Chestnuts come in MANY different shades, there is no one color fits all. Some chestnuts are also known to have scattered white hairs throughout their body, mane, and tail..My mare is a light chestnut with a lot of white ticking (lighter color and more white hairs than your mare), and I know that's she's nothing special color wise, even though she's really shiny.. A horse can be really shiny from just a good diet, the way the light hits the horse, and a lot of imagination..It doesn't have to be a lot of grooming, supplements, show sheen..Just love your horse for who she is, not wanting to think she may have a gene that doesn't even exist..Color doesn't make a horse, neither does shine..
