Just out of curiosity, OP do you have pics of the sire and dam or can you give us their names?

I would vote strongly that one of the parents was not true black. He certainly looks brown and not liver chestnut, but liver can get weird sometimes.

In that last photo he looks liver chestnut!! What a strangely coloured boy! His parents certainly look black though - so I guess he is in the 6% chance of being chestnut???
It would be interesting for you to get him typed!!
He is a gorgeous boy - I'd be so proud to own a horse like him!

ETA - Just looked at the pics of his brother, definitely liver... Wow - he had us all stumped!

Sire looks like he MIGHT be a brown rather than a black.

I think he just may be a liver chestnut. My friend recently had an Appaloosa colt who you would SWEAR looked bay, but in fact his legs kept coming through black looking on photos when in real life we could both blatantly see they were just a deeper shade of chestnut.

Have you examined his legs closely? He looks like he may be "tricking" the camera into looking blacker then he really is.

MM as a previous poster noted, most times liver chestnuts have a lighter coronet band than the rest of their legs. This horse doesn't, and that is the reason I suspect he is not liver at all.

Thank you I am very proud of him.... my mare in my opinion is even more beautiful when I see them both with their heads over their stable its a very 'proud mummy moment' lol....

And I agree his brother is VERY..... WOW!! I had the choice between the two and his brother was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen but there was just something about Romeo that I just fell in love with so I went with my heart and so glad I did!!

I do think he is liver chestnut tho..... as according to genetics he can't be bay so he must be chestnut.... but he is what he is and love him :)

Yer his legs definitely arent black he has no black on him... they are just a slightly darker shade of (whatever colour he is lol) and the difference in shade is exaggerated in pictures xx

why do you say his dad might be brown? Just out of interest.... he has thrown a black foal with a bay mare also so that should make him black surely?

Also I understand what you are saying about the darker points which was what caused the debate lol but have you seen the pics of his brother? He is DEFO liver chestnut and has darker points :)
