    1st pic if she has a dorsal stripe I would say yellow dun.
    Pic of you on her , a pali shade.
    She has a pretty color. She may change as she ages, many Appys will.

    I don't see buckskin at all. Even buttermilk buckskins have either dark chocolate or black hairs on their pasterns/coronet bands.

    I see palomino with a strong possibility of either dun or sooty. Unfortunately, since she's got a blanket, we can't see whether or not she's got a dorsal stripe. On some horses, especially palominos, the dun factors (shoulder bar, leg barring, etc) don't express quite as loudly as on other colors. Plus, the LP gene can do some really funky things to base colors.

    Do you have clearer pictures of her from either side? Preferably while she's slicked off in the summer?

    Either way, the best way to tell for certain would be to have her tested for dun.

    I'm on the sooty palomino boat also. I don't see any dun markings.

    I would say red roan appaloosa a friend of mine has a gelding the same color called possum because of his weird color but they listed him as a red roan appaloosa in his papers.

    Beemimom, the problem with going by what the registration papers say is that they are often wrong. Most horses are registered when they are newborn foals or weanlings, and foal coats can really look different than their actual genetic color.

    For example, a bay horse that has some white flecking in his coat from rabicano (that's a pinto pattern) might actually be registered as a "blue roan" which would be incorrect.

    So true. I think this horse is a very pretty one and if I came across it I would probably have called it a red roan appy but I am just one in a million and if you go to links that show the red roan appy this one sorta fits in to that. But thank you for information I am always willing to learn something new.
