When you get good shots tomorrow, make sure to get one of her legs as well, so we can see what the colour does all the way down to her hoof

She's 100% not blue roan. She would need a black mane and tail and black legs. None of which this mare has. Also she has no black points at all like a blue roan would have such as on the ears and muzzle. That horse is DEFINITALLY red based. Also flaxen doesnt show up on black based horses. If you cover up her body and just look at her face she looks like a sorrel/chestnut. Hence she is a sorrel/chestnut roan. Maybe liver chestnut. There is no way, if you covered up her body and just looked at her face, that she would look like a black horse. I know everyone wants blue roans and they seem to be worth more but hoping she is and calling her a blue roan doesnt make her more of one. In the wise words of shakespeare "A rose by any other name is just as sweet" You have a lovely red roan! My riding mare is a red roan! Enjoy her!

Liver chestnut roan is the first thing that I thought when I saw the pics, too.

I also agree -- liver chestnut roan.

She's quite similar to my pony actually, just a darker base coat. My pony is a red roan with a flaxen mane and tail. While she's lighter overall, you can see in the photo below that she shares many of the same features. Her legs get darker before lightening up right around her coronets, and she's got black, silver, red, etc mixed into her flaxen tail.

Just a few of some of the awesome characteristics our lovely red roans are capable of!

Thats kind of a mean statement. I could care less what color my horse is she is an amazing pony and one of the best I have. I just have never owned a mustang and found her color unique and wanted peoples opinion to lock down a color I don't care what we decide on just would love to know she could be purple and I would still love her
The same

But here are two more pics no there not good either I need a new camera and I can't kept my daughter away for more then one second even to get a pic
