    I was just looking at my mare's reg papers nad her mare was a chestnut/overo and the sire was a buckskin/overo..... she is obviously a chestnut now but she's reg'd as a sorrel/over

    That's obviously countershading, it's 'smudged' all over her topline IMO.

    I think the OP's foal's dorsal stripe is reliable because it's just as prominent in his baby pic, where he still has his textured baby fuzz, as it is in the picture when he's in the trailer and much older and is done shedding his foal coat.
    Just as texasgal said, he's shedded his baby coat, and there's no color change.

    @bird3220; chestnut and sorrel are the same thing. The difference between the two varies by where you're from and what terms you grew up with, but it's the same thing, but the correct name is chestnut.

    Chestnut and sorrel can also be used to describe the differences in shade. That's how I've always know those colors. The lighter, more orangey colors are sorrel and the darker, richer colors are chestnut.

    I love her darker more chestnut coloring!!!!! I thought she would lighten up because of summer time, but this year she is actually staying the darker color instead of fading!!!
