Question Chestnut grey?

My dappled thoroughbred has a kind of chestnut colouring around her her back legs like ether side of where her tail sits she has chestnut flakes through it. She's going on 8 later this year but I was just wondering is this normal? Or what? It's not dirt because she is stabled at night and is rugged from head to toe. It's faded the tiniest bit since over had her but it's still there.

She's pretty (pictures under "horses" Sky). I would say it's just the dappling process. I would like to see more pictures tho

I'll take some better ones tomorrow morning before she goes to training for two weeks. :(

This is about the best I got for now, you can see some of the brown on her back leg.

I know she has a small neck in this, this photo was taken ages ago, like when I first got her.

Looks like a bit of rose-grey coming through. My half Andalusian is this colour. His name is Fudge lol. Sort of like caramel fudge!

Can you please put up a photo when possible? I'd love to see!

Yep, I am going to get my friend to teach me how to post pics this coming week. It is definitely a large hole in my computer knowledge.

The colour looks almost pink!!

Rose grey is just a shade grey horses may or may not go through as they whiten out.
