What shade of buckskin?

Hi, I was wondering what color of buckskin everyone thought this was. The picture was taken by a member of the forum. I was thinking along the lines of a buttermilk buckskin. What does everyone else think.

I've never really thought to give it a special name, but that is what I think of as regular buckskin (my favorite shade). The only one I generally think of w/ a different name is sooty (which I don't really care for). But if I see buttermilk buckskin I think of a much lighter, pale color.

A buckskin is a buckskin. It is one of my pet peeves when people start trying to put special names to a color. It is what it is. A buckskin.

If you wanted to colour code it, you could say buttermilk. But I agree with NRHAReiner. A buckskin is a buckskin is a buckskin.
