Have you got any clearer photos? Ideally, they would be in good, early afternoon or late morning sunlight, with the focus being on the horse and clear.

Could she be a red roan? It looks like in the pictures she has red hairs. I am by no means an expert. I am subbing so I can try and learn me something..LOL

She does have red hairs but mainly gray and white and the grayish white marking on the side She changes every day and she is eight as far as I know she was a rescue

The pictures showing red hair are also taken in the late afternoon. The "golden hour" as it is known to photographers, tends to make pictures come out a lot warmer than if they were taken in normal sunlight.

Roan for sure. Maybe something else, like silver (silver bay) too?

I would say that she's a red roan or a chestnut roan (whatever you want to call her, they are the same thing genetically). She's just a darker chestnut than the normal red roans you see. She's leaning more toward liver chestnut than she is the brighter shades.

Of course, there's no way to be more certain without better pictures but I'd bet dollars to donuts that she's a chestnut (red) roan.

Does the coloring on her legs get lighter and lighter in shade as you get closer to her hooves?

Looks like a [liver/darker] chestnut with roan.
