So i'm busy going lalala through all the threads and looking at people asking what color their horse is. I keep seeing barring being mentioned when buckskins and duns come into play. I'm guessing it's the lack of a fully black leg?
What exactly is my boy (not that I will call him anything other than golden or buckskin lol, just curious)...

I tried my best to scrounge up a good butt, back and leg shot.

He had a spare amount of white/cream mane from the flip side of his neck that frosted the top layer, I haven't seen it since the spring time though.

Buckskins haven't got the barring that duns get. The barring is caused by the dun gene, and is often referred to as "primitive markings".

Your boy is definitely buckskin

It's the stripes on the back of the legs,

Your guy is definitely a buckskin. First giveaway is the lack of a dorsal. Duns will have things like a prominent dorsal stripe, leg barring, darkened shoulder/whither, striped chest, etc. Don't confuse it with counter shaded dorsal stripes.

I still don't totally get the barring... is it like the zebra type stripes on the legs or a stripe running up the back of the leg?
