Unique Chestnut? Wild Bay? Something else? What is she?
3 Attachment(s)
Hello! I am new to forum, and have been lurking around this page especially because I am not sure what my new horse's color would be classified as. I just got her today and I am beyond pumped to be a horse mom! Her previous owner called her "chestnut sabino with dark points." She has a dorsal stripe too. However the paperwork I have from the previous owner's vets says "brown"

I feel like she is either a really unique chestnut or something like a wild bay. Her mane and tail are really dark, like a liver chestnut's would be, but her coat is a medium chestnut.

Any ideas would be helpful! These are the best pics I have of her, will try and get better ones tommorrow weather permitting.

Ash and Shulla =)

She is a chestnut. The big hint here is the lower part of the leg with the least white. See how it gets lighter right toward her coronet band? A bay won't do that. They only get darker as you go down - even a wild bay.

Yup, chestnut. She's a cutie! Congrats! :)

I agree, I would call her a chestnut. Perhaps "dark chestnut" if I wanted to get really descriptive LOL.

She's cute.

Yup, chestnut
She looks EXACTLY, like my little sister's pony!!
Is her name Shulla?
My sister's horse's name is Shyla!

Sweet thanks guys! I thought she was chestnut too, but the owner of the place I am boarding her at said wild bay.

And yes her name is Shulla (Shoo-la)!

I can't wait to be done with work today so I can get out and work with her!
