Color of the new baby?

I had a cute little foal born March 9th.
However, I am completely unsure of what color I should call her. She looks buckskin, but her Mane is white on the sides, but it's black down the middle. She doesn't have any of the black points, either.
The mare was born a grullo.
The stud is unknown.

Here are pictures:

Is that the mare the foal is in with? If so she doesn't appear to be grulla/o.

Foal looks to be just a buckskin, no dun.

You've got a little buckskin. Foal coats are screwy. The white hairs on the mane and tail should go away with age as she sheds out.

Looks buckskin to me. A lot of the white hairs are baby hairs that will be shed out. And alot of buckskins do still have "frosting" to their main and tail head.

Is the bay horse in the pic the dam? Horses that are born grulla, stay grulla unless they grey.

Definitely not a grulla

Don't buckskins have the black on their legs? I can't remember if my old buckskin did or not...I will have to go find some pics of him

As adults they do, foals tend to have "softer" colors and lighter colored legs at birth.

Yearling foals their black points are very faint and don't start showing for a few months.

Yep, buckskin. But oh my god she is ADORABLE!!! :)

I would also say buckskin. She's most definitely adorable. As for momma, I would say she is a fading black, judging from the pictures.
