She is very cute, I'd say a lovely chestnut :)

Do you know what color Dad is? With the peachy tone of this foal I wonder if it could be palomino? The tone looks a little "softer" than most chestnut foals that I have seen.

The eye color is normal foal blue and will fade over time.

Does it have a dorsal stripe? I can almost see one but my eyes could be playing tricks on me.

If it does (which I don't see one) it most likely would be foal countershading as it obviously does not go down in to the tail like a true dun foals would.

This is her back leg it looks like stripes. Sometimes I see a dorsal stripe and sometimes not. It's like she changes color in different lights

I'm leaning towards palomino with how light her eyes and the skin around them are.
