Chestnut or palomino
We thought this filly was chestnut when she was born, now I have second thoughts that she might be palomino.... Her dam is flaxen chestnut and sire is palomino... What do ya'll think..there are more photos in my gallery..

Chestnut

:-? Mom has that "liver" tone to her coat (assuming that is "mum" in the pixs) so I am gonna go out on a limb an agree with Amanda that this little lady is a liver, possibly with flaxen. Nice "chrome" too... :grin:

The foal shed is often the darkest (for reasons we don't understand). So it is possible for them to shed off really dark then settle back to a more "normal" chestnut.

maybe or maybe not

Your foal may be a liver chestnut :love however....Don't be surprised if she ends up being a reg. chestnut or sorrel :BH . Whatever her color, she is a beauty and looks so sweet. :toast

I had high hopes for Destiny to be a liver like her momma, but no such luck. Here is her progression from the start of foal shed to age 3

Destiny

She was 4 in that last pix...she is still that red now (a definite sorrel - obviously lighter mane & tail).
