Ok, I Give, What Color Is She?

This is Jada, she is new. She is an iihh pony of what breeding I have no idea, but she is so narrow and built like a hackney/modern shetland with an arabian/welsh head. Who knows.
Anyway, she hs black, yes, wih rusty mane and tail, and faded red winter hair where she is shedding out.
The funny thing is she has rusty colored lower legs. Like light chestnut. What color is this?? Does this mean she has red somewhere is her genes?

This is the only pic where I can get a glimpse of it, but when I look at her legs next to me, they are chestnut.

I honestly am not sure. I think dark/liver chestnut is probably correct, but something just.. doesn't fit perfectly.. but the lighting on this laptop is less than stellar, so it could be that lol. Do you know how old she is?

I honestly don't know. If she was a stock horse, then I would likely agree with liver chestnut. However, there are so many variables when pony genetics are concerned with the silver gene and others like it that probably the only way to know beyond a rough guesstimation would be to have her tested.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah. The other thing I was wondering about was silver, hence why I asked the pony's age.. silver's manes often darken significantly as they age, like this, and the horse pictured was born in 1998, not sure what year the picture is:



Or this:



But.. if the pony is young that wouldn't make any sense..

She is supposed to be six, but her teeth tell me closer to eight or nine.

Anyone know what colour my boy is?
We always thought he was black, but he has red/orange through him at times. O.o
