Any idea what color this is?
Here is my new mare. She is a 12 year old Paint/Spanish Barb cross. She has a dorsal stripe and if you look closely in person you can see some leg barring. Any idea what she is (aside from extremely fat :lol:) color wise? We were thinking a sooty dun. But again I have no clue and I do not know what her parents were.

My first thought before reading your description was sooty liver chestnut, especially in that first picture of her being longed. IIRC, sooty can sometimes mimic dun factor markings. Can you post pics of the dorsal stripe and leg barring?
I will get better pictures when I see her Sunday or Monday. Her color has way more depth and is more complex than my Brown mare that is for sure.

She looks chestnut to me. If she were dun, I would expect the dark legs to extend to her hoof. However, she displays a trait that is common to chestnuts instead - the lighter colour at the hoof. Even the most dark chestnuts still tend to have that pale coronet.

I would say chestnut as well. Nothing about her color screams dun
Ok here is more pictures. Wish they were better but just can't seem to make it to the barn in daylight hours.

Looks chestnut to me too. Dorsal stripes have to occur without a dun gene being present sometimes because I have three Arabians with dorsal stripes and two with leg and shoulder barring, and Arabians do not carry a dun gene. Not that she doesn't carry a dun gene, but those markings can't be exclusive to it.
She is gorgeous. :-)

I'm changing my guess to sooty red dun. That last picture especially looks like the coat is diluted, but there's definitely sooty going on as well.

Those pictures are better ;) Now i might guess at sooty red dun as well. The first photos dont show any detail in her coloring
