color guesses? (pic heavy)

I'm not sure if there's any way to tell without a test but I'm curious if anyone has any tricks to tell what color my mare really is?
My best guesses is a faded black, seal brown, really dark bay? Or black chestnut. She is outside all day and sun bleaching is definitely a big factor.

Full body:

Face close up:

Dapples and white flicks:

Is that a Ben'd or spot? It's more obvious in real life:

Thanks everyone I love this forum

I think fading black. Definitely not a dark chestnut - no matter how dark she gets, you would expect some red hairs low on her legs, at least a gingery touch to her coronets etc. I don't think brown - the faded colour is too even to be consistent with brown, it's far more consistent with faded black.

I'd say she is brown and that it is a bend or spot...But I'm not an expert.

Thank you I really hope she's at least not a black chestnut -if I ever do breed her I'd like a black gene to carry on x.x Chestnuts are my least favorite! I thought Bend or spots only came on chestnuts though - I don't know?

Bend ors can be on any colour. It's just more usual to see them on chestnuts, palominos, buckskins etc as they are light enough for it to be obvious. On bays and browns, blacks even, it's sometimes harder to see them.

Also, she is definitely NOT dark chestnut. Like I said, she is lacking the lighter coronets, which is pretty much mandatory for her to be chestnut. You can see them in this picture:
