Bay or Buckskin??

I have a 1 year old thoroughbred filly and I can't tell what color she is. Her father is a buckskin thoroughbred (smoked gold) and her mother is a bay thoroughbred. She is light bay with a black mane and tail, but she has buckskin cream legs with black socks and a little white on her front leg. She also has blonde cream highlights in her mane?! Please help?!

Photos definitely take a lot of guesswork out of it :)

Sounds snowcapped to me, but a photo would do wonders!

Can't possibly be snowcap

I am going to go with bay from the description. However, I can't tell without a photo to be honest.

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.

OP - Guessing this is the horse from your barn on here? Arizona the bay and white Thoroughbred

If so she is bay. The "buckskin" color on her legs is baby fur that is sunbleached. She will loose that.
