Chestnut and Sorrel are the SAME colour genetically. Both would test as ee.
*sigh* Unfortunately, yes. They also only recently started recognizing bay roans as their own colour. For yearsss they were just called red roans and registered as such. Chestnut/Sorrel is a VERY different colour than bay.

The AQHA will register them as different colours though, sorrel and chestnut. If it's the red-orangey shade, they get called sorrel. If they're technically liver chestnuts or just more brown, they're chestnuts.

When it comes down to it, I would never trust a registry to get the right color or to tell me the color. They are no where near up to date on color genetics. The JC is a perfect example of this...

Registering bodies are so dumb with colour sometimes. I know I rave about this, but in Australia we have a body called the Buckskin and Dun Horse Assoc. Granted they are just a colour registry... but still...

Is that registry part of the International Buckskin Horse Association? Hahaha. It's a colour registry for buckskins and duns. I do think their website says that buckskins CAN have dorsal stripes though.
