Buckskin or not?

I bought this little girl at an auction because I just couldn't think about her going to another bad place. I assumed she was a buckskin but then just started thinking about all the little variations in color that could classify her as something else. What do y'all think?

Also how would you say her conformation is. The previous owner said she was 12 months old and has a QH sire and spanish mustang dam.

I'll apologize now for some of the picture quality. I'm definitely not a photographer!

Yes definitely a buckskin there.

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

I also go with buckskin. And she is a very striking looking darling. (Oh, and the guy holding her looks OK too).

Thanks! Hubby had to hold her because she did NOT want to stand still which is why some of the pictures are a little blurry.

Ok, took a few more pics the other day and saw what might be leg barring but not sure how prominent it should be or will it change as she grows? Can someone help me out?

I have a dun. His leg bars (both front and back) are quite distinct and well defined. He also has a noticeable dorsal strip and some striping on his whithers. I can sort of see some barring; have you noticed anything happening with the whithers? It may take a shedding out of the old coat and new one coming to bring these patterns out, if they are there.

She does have something going on with her shoulders but it's very faint. Looks like someone dipped 3 fingers in paint (a shade darker than she is) and ran them down her shouldrs. I'm not sure if the camera will pick it up or not but I will try.

Her coat has gotten so much shinier since we've had her. I can't wait till she sheds out again to see how/if her coloring changes and if those patterns come out!
