What color does this look like to you?

Her sire and dam are palominos, her dam is a sooty palomino. At first we thought she was a sorrel but now she is shedding out black. Any ideas?

I don't anything about genetics, but the color of her mane looks to be the same color as my first mare. She was a liver chestnut.

Do you have any pics as a younger foal? I don't like guessing when they are this stage as the baby fuzz can be pretty well sunburnt.


Always remember that the first shed is the darkest shed.

Haha. Poor girl...she is trying so hard to be an Appy, but it's just not in the stars...

It will be interesting to see her all shed out...

Chestnut/sorrel would be what she is imo.

I agree face. Some horses just try so hard to be Appys but never quite succeed.

I would agree with chestnut/sorrel. It's hard to tell with baby fur & the first shed. You'll just have to wait and see what her mane does ;)
