Liver chestnut or regular chestnut?
This is something I have discussed with multiple people and I have gotten different answers. My horse's previous owner called him a liver chestnut but others tell me he is a regular chestnut and I am having trouble deciding which one he is. He has the mane and tail of a more liver chestnut horse but his coat isn't as dark. His tail has a lighter tone of chestnut down at the bottom. Also, he has a few (maybe 3) small random splotches of darker chestnut on his coat, if that helps.
first pic I'd have said chestnut, but looking at his mane and tail in the second I'm going to say liver chestnut, his mane and tail are too dark for a regular chestnut colouring ...
with that dark mane and tail , he is what is referred to as a bright bay. not a chestnut at all
Maybe Blood Bay?
i think bright bay is right also
chestnuts really dont have that dark of mane and tails
he looks liver chestnut in the 1st picture, but bay in the 2nd apart from the slight brown tinge in the tail.
some examples i think that last one best represents liver chestnut.
Photos can be a poor indicator concerning colors that are very close due to camera differences but I don't see how anyone sees Bay. There are no black points aside from mane and tail. What I see is Brown, pure and simple.

I agree with a bay. He is a bay without black leggings.
All bays have black points. He is a dark chestnut. Not a liver chestnut, not a bay.
