After I bought/rescued her I gave her a bath and under all of the dirt and grim (Which literally took 4 full baths to get completely out!) Was one of the prettiest colored coats I have ever seen. Mia is the first Chestnut I have owned and I just don't pay much attention to other peoples horses. Mia's coat has a very metallic sheen that looks like copper when the light hits it she's all shinny like metal or like she is wet and she's not. She can be rather dazzling on a sunny day. What I am wondering is this normal for a chestnut or not. And if it's not what is it called. I am going to have to start looking for another one in the next couple years and I would love to get one that is from the same line as her and even though it is the very last thing I look at I would truly love to get another with this type of coat. Wondering if it's just a typical chestnut coat or something else.
