    I would say Chestnut.
    I have two papered Tennessee's who are registered Chestnuts, and they get black while in the barn or in the winter, but while outside especially in summer, they turn a brown just like your pics.

    Id go with chestnut

    I think we must remember, that what is put on registration papers as colour of a given horse, is not necessarily true. It is often just what the breeder thought the horse looked like - often at birth or very young. Tons of horses have been registered as chestnut when babies, when in fact they were grey. Also silvers registered as grey. In Miniature Horse pedigrees and registration, we constantly see colours as something they actually couldn't be. It's fun to guess, but the only way to know the truth, is to test.

    I think dark bay, black, or maybe liver chestnut?

    Not brown, she would have to have the mealy muzzle. Not dark bay because bays are a fairly uniform colour, and not fading black because a fading black would fade from top to bottom, not bottom to top.

    Possibly "black buckskin" as the owner suggests - called smokey black in the USA. I knew what they were talking about straight away because here in Aus we call smokey black, black buckskin, and as far as I'm aware it's the same in several European countries.

    Edit; that's Shanoona's horse, not OP's horse. OP's horse is brown.
