Buckskin Dun or other base color?

I have had many people refer to my AQHA mare as a buckskin color. She has the dun stripe and the tiger striping on the side/back of her legs (even though it isn't really clear in the pics). However, is she really considered a buckskin dun or another color? She looks a little more "orangey" colored to me. Perhaps she is a variation of buckskin that I am not used to seeing? I know it is a bit pic heavy, but I was trying to show you her shades. Thanks for yourknowledge!!

That mare is a Bay Dun. So Bay based + Dun. Pretty girl.

A Buckskin is Bay based + Cream. Completely different. And they can be difficult to tell apart.

Oh ok. I didn't think she was a buckskin, but so many people have referred to her as my buckskin, that I figured I would ask the experts

It's a common mistake. She has zebra stripes and a prominent dorsal which makes her a dun.

I went to look at a filly yesterday and they had a bay dun there they kept referring to as a buckskin. It was driving me nuts and that mare had wayyy more dun factor then your girl does. But I was too polite to correct them. They also thought that a palomino doesn't carry the cream gene. *head desk* Ugh...Some people.

I agree she is bay dun she has dun markings, a buckskin is a bay with one cream dilution gene.

Well I think my girl is beautiful and I love her to death. She goes with my other two bay TB varieties then ...hehehe!
I won't correct people when they call her a buckskin dun, but at least now I know for sure what to call her. Truly appreciated.

So the TB mare next to her in the second picture that is partially shed out....is there a name for that color of bay or is it just bay? She gets really dark as you can see from the remaining hair in the winter and then sheds out to the lighter color you can see on her flank area.

I think that's just a typical bay, I've heard the term dark bay to describe bays with darker brown colouring.
