What color is she?
 
I know this may be juvenile or stupid, but what color is Bunny?

I've considered chestnut, dark chestnut, liver chestnut, bay, everything! She just doesn't seem to fit the bill exactly for any color I know of. I'll admit, I'm no color expert though.

Thank you! Hope this isn't too stupid of a question! :roll:

I thought so as she has red hairs, but she's really dark to be a chestnut to me. Liver chestnut? Or is it just me being color blind? :lol:

Liver chestnut = chestnut = sorrel.

Basically she is red. Just a darker red. :-)

:D Hahahaha, so I suppose you could call her burgundy? :wink:

She's a sorrel. [;
Liver chestnut's are a LOT darker and are pretty much brown.
Chestnut's are lighter.

If she was a bay she would have black points (black legs, black mane, black tail).

Thanks Amber :-)

But I never knew there was actual difference between sorrel and chestnut! I always thought it was just that chestnut was the English term, and sorrel was the western. Silly me! :-P

In truth there is no difference. On a genetic level they are the same.

Two To Tango 06-09-2011 04:49 PM

I'm not talking about a genetic level, I'm talking about what the eye can see.
At my barn if you say "I like that sorrel horse!" and there's a chestnut there, they'll be like "I didn't know there was a sorrel in this pasture..." My barn is all english, not one sight of western there so it's more then a western and english thing.[;

I think that is "English" term in the "England" sense, not in the "flattish-saddle" sense. And "Western" as in "Western part of the US" rather than in the "big comfy saddle" sense.
