color genetics arguement, what color is she

My friends mare had a filly on March 1st and nobody is agreeing on her color. I'm just curious what everyone thinks. I say Palomino she doesn't look like one heck she looks like a red dun, that's what her now owner says Twizzle(fillies name) will be coming to live with me after her surgery so I am sort of wanting her to palomino out if you will. The thing is according to every color genetic chart I've ever seen, she can't be a dun first off neither parent is a dun. Second she can't be a red anything her sire is a Cremello and dam is a chestnut which from my understanding means 100% Palomino. Am I correct she will shed out and her mane will lighten up??
Here are some pics of my soon to be new girl.

Palomino foals don't have white manes and tails when they're little. They take a few months to grow in, but if her parents are a chestnut and a cremello, then yes, she is a palomino. The dorsal stripe is common in foals and may either go away completely or just be countershading when she's older.

Chestnut plus cremello will ALWAYS result in palomino. She will shed out. I have seen a colt born cherry red turn into a beautiful gold palomino.

She can't be a chestnut. Breeding a cremello to a chestnut will ALWAYS produce a palomino.

There can always be the possibility that the stud is also carrying dun with his double dose of cream. As we don't know the stud, I am just throwing that out there.

There is a cremello near me that is also carrying dun...

Her tendon hasn't stretched, that's the reason she's coming here, her now owner can't afford surgery. I'm paying for the surgery with the help of an organization that helps horses in need. She's cute and will be my first baby so I will be calling on you guys for training tips. Vet says tha she has a really good chance coming out of surgery 100% sound. I pray she does

I know this is off topic but I'm not sure I would be considering surgery at that age unless it was a last resort.....a lot of foals with the right splinting and farrier care will straighten out.....has she had a tetracycline injection to relax her tendon.....also trimming the heel(only) down every few days to a week will also encourage the tendon to stretch.....also keeping the foal on a hard even surface like rubber mats with no bedding also helps.

Good luck with her.....she is certainly a really nice looking foal.
