Buckskin? Roan? What?

What colour is this mare? The ad says bay roan, but Allbreed claims buckskin. She has lots of roans in her lines: Jk Rockets Valentine Quarter Horse

Here's some photos:

Pics from CL, sorry they are crooked.

ETA: I am not an AQHA member, but if someone is, they could look her up. I believe she is FQHA reg too.

Im actually thinking she's more along the lines of a sooty bay/brown dun. But, these photos are not good enough to give an accurate color. Photos are good enough to determine any roaning either IMO.

They say she throws roan. Seems she had two colts at least, but I can't tell their colour from Allbreed.

Those pictures aren't great. From those, she looks like a brown roan. The first picture looks like she's a roan.

Allbreed isn't a good source to determine color with, just maybe give an idea because the information can be put in by random people and isn't verified.

Okay. I'll post more pics when I get them. I wouldn't be breeding her; just interested in her colour.

Whats her tail look like? Almost looks rabicino to me.

With the darkening on her face, I'd say she's either bay dun, brown dun, or has sooty. She has a dorsal, but the light is reflecting off it in both pictures that show it, so it could be countershading.

I'm leaning towards brown for her base color, largely because she appears so much darker in the first photo, and browns tend to vary in color like that throughout the year. It could just be an effect of the lighting, though.

I'd believe the roan, but it can be hard to photograph well unless they're VERY roan.

My two cents is sooty bay. Possibly roan.

Interesting! I should have more pics soon, and if not I think I am going to see her Saturday so I will snap some then.

IMO she's definitely Bay/Brown dun. In the first picture she looks roaned, but none of them are good enough for me to say whether I think she's truly roan or not.
