Registries are notoriously completely wrong when it comes to colors and how genetics work, so I'm glad you didn't just go with what they said.

In all honesty, testing would give you the most straightforward and accurate answer; we on the internet can only speculate.

I am going to go ahead and have the test done, I just was looking for an opinion so I know what color genetics I might be looking for when I send it to the lab.

a good friend of mine had a few minis several years back...all registered as chestnuts. Funny...they started popping out black silver foals..haha. It's then we realized her "chestnuts" were actually all bay silvers!

She did go to the registries and get that fixed. Thanks to that, several other horses got their colors fixed as well.

I think smokey brown (At and cream)

Check out the top left photo on page two of this link

That's kind of where I get my guess from.
