    There always seem to be so many disagreements between colors and shades in the horse world. Regardless of whether we think sorrel and chestnut are the same or not, at least in the APHA world, they are recognized as different colors with regard to registration. You can see the APHA examples at APHA.Com - Coat Colors
    Our mare, Cinnamon, is registered as a sorrel, and our mare, Lady, is registered as a chestnut.

    Genetically sorrel and chestnut are the exact same color. Just like every other color in the world, there are variations of the shade. On a genetic level they are exactly the same, in other words red.

    I have to agree with this thought.

    They are all chestnut to me.

    It is interesting that APHA calls them two different things.

    The APHA and AQHA (and maybe the Jockey Club..not 100% on it, but my friend has a TB registered as sorrel) are the only registries that use the term "sorrel" to my knowledge. Nd, does the ApHC?

    My appy mare's papers say 'Chestnut or Sorrel' on them.

    (Though I think she is neither, but no one really can decide what color her base color is.)
