Sun bleached black. None of the typical lighter shading on the muzzle, flanks, etc as a brown, and when her new coat comes in she looks black. Without testing its pretty hard to say for sure. I think the fading is interesting myself.
Most vets(and a huge amount of horse people, If I had a penny for every bay varnish roan advertised as a "gorgeous blue roan" I'd be doing pretty good.) have little to no idea about color. I've heard a plain, bright bay advertised as 'rare blood bay', had people argue the difference between a sorrel and a chestnut, and many dark bays called black, and that's not even getting into the roans or bay vs brown...
