Appaloosa Coloring is she a dun?

I've wondered about Autumns coloring for awhile now . The lady I bought her from said she was a palomino with a blanket but I definately see some dun in her leg markings. What do u guys think?
Some in the summer

And in winter woolies

Not Dun. I would say Buckskin, not palomino.

Just my uneducated guess.

I'm gonna say palomino with sooty. The sooty would be what is causing her darker mane and tail, as well as the slightly darker legs and face in the summer. I'm not seeing any markings associated with duns (like a dorsal stripe or prominent leg barring).

I definitely don't see dun, but I don't know if I would say palomino either. Do we know the parents' colors?

He's registered but there are no pictures of her parents on all pedigree and I'm clueless on how to find any pictures any other way. Her registered name is A Vision So Precious

Goodness. I looked up his pedigree and so far I see tons of colors listed for those he's related to so it appears quite a wide range of colors to choose from for him. More research to follow...

Not 100% sure but she appears to have the lighter hairs above the hoof of a typical red based horse so I'm gonna say sooty palomino appy. But I'm not sure because the resolution isn't that great around the legs. Is she roan as well? She looks like she has the upside down V's on her front legs.

Buckskin IMO...though she really could be anything. LP tends to be really screwy with colors.
