Zebra stripes would show despite the black and you can tell from the one pic that this horse has no dorsal either.

However, with more golden hue to the coat I would say this is a lovely shade of buckskin.

Okay. Then yea id say buckskin

I want to say buckskin too.

However, here comes my disclaimer. She could still be a bay. Remember that coat colour has a lot to do with nutrition. So the less than amazing feed that she is getting might be hindering her coat to be its shiny best. (I still think bucky though).

I'd say bay, I looks too dark to be buckskin to me.

I'm sure - she did not have any signs of a dorsal or leg barring whatsoever

Her coat was actually very shiny and healthy looking- though I know they did have a fairly rough winter (I saw pics from Jan and Feb and they all were very ribby).

Her coat looks sunburnt .. which can make the guessing a little harder.

I have seen bays go this colour from sunburn, she could be either.
