Sooty liver Chestnut

Firstly is it possible for a liver chestnut to be sooty.
I have this filly that I think might be sooty she has dark patches on her back legs kind of like this

but she hasn't got any black in her mane it is a light brown colour She is registered as bay but haven't got any black points her sire is Piebald her dam is chestnut and white

And this is her not a good picture I know as you can't see it very well as she is in her winter coat but I have lost my camera so can't get any better ones but you can see the back leg is darker, right now it looks light she has her mane liver chestnut colour then she has splodges of a bay red colour.

Anyone got any ideas what is going on?

Looks like a flaxen chestnut with sooty at work. Yes a liver chestnut can have the sooty gene as well. Some will just not show it as well as others depending on how dark the horse is.

She does have black in her main and tail didn't notice that with her before was playing with her today as we have a show on Saturday and I have decided I think she is Sooty flaxen liver chestnut with tabiano, sabino and splash.

My reasoning behind my thinking:
Sooty because she has black hair through her coloured coat but no clear black points to make her bay, Flaxen because her main is a very light colour, tobiano is of course because of her white patches, sabino because her white markings blend with her chestnut (white hairs in her colours) and they aren't clear lines and splash because of her snip.
Correct me if anything sounds wrong.

I'm confused. Who is that incredibly bum-high horse in the picture link? Not the same horse you are speaking of, right?

The top one isn't her that is just an example of what her splodges look like, that is a picture taken about a year ago I don't have any newer ones as they are one my broken laptop but she has gotten darker.
