The only other picture I have is of her next to a chestnut and white paint and a black gelding. But it's from the back

Wow, that's a gorgeous horse!!!

The rescue owner has her listed as "chocolate"... So is she more of a flaxen liver chestnut? Maybe? Regardless of the name of her color, she sure would look nice in my pasture...

She really is a beautiful shade, but I agree that she is likely a flaxen chestnut. The thing about palominos, regardless of how sooty they are, they still have the yellow undertint, especially in their mane/tail. That filly, however, appears to have more of an orangey tinge, especially in her mane/tail.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
