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.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

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).

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

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.

Buckskin....

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
