Looks like a sorrel, but with browner mane and tail

My little cousins horse is sorrel but her mane and tail are brown... she has no dorsal stripe and no darkening on her legs.... is this possible for a sorrel to have dark mane and tail or could she be another color? I do not have pictures yet....

Yes - a sorrel/chestnut can have a darker mane and tail.

Perfectly normal.

I am guessing it is something like one of the following horses?

Yup. Totally possible.

That's exactly like my boy. :) I was convinced he was a golden dun or something fancy. Nope! Just a cool chestnut
