    Whether or not it is an English or Western thing doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what color you call her. She is genetically red and red is what she is.

    I think she's too dark to be a sorrell. Chestnut would be my guess.

    I suppose so!

    Red is sorrel. Sorrel is chestnut. Chestnut is red.

    She's red no matter what!

    Since there is no "red" on a registration, saying she is a red only generalizes her color. As in any color, there are specific variations and some horses ride the line between those variations. Judging from your picture, I would call her a chestnut; sorrel is lighter and liver has more brown in it.

    This is actually a question that can be debated forever since it is a subjective thing and based on the perception of the viewer.

    Agreed.

    It really is how you were raised, and different people were taught different standards for certain colors.

    Now of COURSE Bunny had to go be difficult and go in-between colors!
