I see these colors... but without testing I don't know exactly what it is lol

A Liver Chestnut Roan (or sabino instead of roan)
A Smutty Dun Sabino or roan (does she have stripes on her legs?)
A Smutty Buckskin Sabino or roan
A Silver Mahogany Bay roan (with not a lot of white in the mane and tail)

I personally would go with a Smutty Dun Sabino. That's what I think she looks most like lol.

Looks like smoky blue roan, a relative of black. The white baby fur might be a roan thing?

I just don't see Sab to be honest. The white ticking is so beautifully even. She isn't classic roan, there is too much ticking on her face and legs. I am feeling stumped :(

Mabey smokey black?

If Mom was bay and Daddy was black it's not possible. If Daddy was a smokey himself it is...

After seeing the baby picture, I am going to put my money on liver chestnut with sabino roaning. Gah, every time I look at the pictures, I fall more and more in love with her color. She reminds me so much of a liver chestnut stud we had years ago, especially in that middle pic.

I think she's either a liver chestnut or a sooty bay.

Wow, she is a stunner. No guesses on the color from me, but now I'm curious--make sure to let us know if you have her color tested!

On whoever said roan isn't on the face or some such (sorry don't want to go back and quote ) it is rare, but it does happen that roan can and will roan the whole horse evenly. It is rare, but it does happen. (just pointing this out! Lol)

I am in no way saying that this is going on here, since roan is not possible unless sire or dam are roan.

OP can you post the pedigree of the mare and possibly pics of the sire and dam?

I'd go for a liver chestnut sabino as well. The pointed socks and the wrap under chin blaze tend to be indicators. For sabino. My sabino mare Freyja has large spots of white on her body but also "roan" patches or areas of white ticking almost everywhere else. My sabino colt is mostly solid on his body apart from one belly splash, but each year he has had more white ticking spreading across his body starting at the rump and withers.
