Both horses are different shades of chestnut (or sorrel). The chestnut or sorrel colour is divided into several different shades - yellow, light, copper, gold, red, dark and liver. The filly on the right is a light chestnut and the one on the left is dark or liver chestnut.

Just curious, what makes you say chestnut rather than dark palomino? Is it the color of her mane?

I agree with light chestnut/sorrel.
And she's a beautiful shade of chestnut, if I do say. :p
And yes, colour of the mane is the reason, Sarah.(:

I have a light chestnut also, but in between the 2 shades in your pic, but w/a flaxen mane/darker tail. Love how your horse is glistening in the sun-very pretty!

Red duns sometimes get that appearance, however this mare does not appear to have strong dun points.

Here is a somewhat similar horse listed as a red dun: HORSES FOR SALE: 52 RED DUN QUARTER HORSE; STEER ROPING PROSPECT FOR SALE.

Looks like some variation on champagne to me.

1. Do you know what color her parents are? If so, what?

2. Does she have striped hooves and mottled skin by her nose and eyes?

I am between a very light chestnut and gold champagne.

I'm pretty sure that's champagne on a sorrel base.
