Upon further though, it is probably that either or both parents are actually brown, but very very dark in their expression.
Yes she has been registered. The mare's first foal was similar and looked like a bay for sure out of a chestnut and her last foal before this one was a chestnut out of a chestnut but ended up having a flaxen mane and tail. All the foals were lighter in their soft spots like creme or fawn. I just don't understand the whole genetic thing and was in denil that she could have a brown out of 2 black parents.
