She is completely red on the body and mane, except she has some black hair in her tail.

Her sire was a bay and her dam is a chestnut. Here's a link to a picture of her.

That looks just like a chestnut to me. I would be surprised if she turned out to be a bay. But that is just what I think, and I am no expert.:-)

Thanks. I just thought I'd get some peoples opinions. I wasn't sure if it's possible for a chesnut mare to have black in her tail?!?! The breeder we bought her from when she was a foal registered her as a bay with AQHA.

Bay requires black mane and tail and "points" (i.e. leg extremities).

My quarter horse chestnut mare has some dark brown/black in her tail. I asked AQHA about it and they said that this was classic chestnut coloring. If you are still unsure, you could have her tested for the agouti (bay) gene.

I have a filly at the moment and she was born chestnut. Since then she has started shedding and has progressivly gotten darker. Her mum is a bay with heavy smutting all over her coat the sire was a sorrel (flaxen chestnut). The dam has always put the smutty gene on all her foals and to start with i thought that the foal was just going a liver colour with smutts, BUT it looks like her mane and tail are now going black and her legs also look like they are black. Is it possible for a chestnut foal to turn bay? or do you think she will just be a liver chestnut?
I will include a link to photo's from when she was only a week old to photo's of now.

She looks like a liver chestnut to me. I had a bay filly this year, and her coloring once she shed her foal coat is not near as chocolaty as your baby.
