Filly's final color? buckskin?

We had a filly born on April 13th and I was thrilled to see it looking like a buckskin. But now I have had people tell me they don't believe she will remain buckskin due to how dark she is around her eyes. The dam was a bay and the sure a palomino. Anyone with experience think they know what color she is?

The first photo of her was taken about a week ago and the other photo was of her a few weeks old. PS that is a piece of hay in the picture, not a stick

Yep, I'd definitely say she's a buckskin. A very adorable one at that .

A foal's first shed is generally their darkest, and it's not uncommon for buckskins to shed out really dark when they first shed in the spring. Both of mine shed out dark before evening out to a beautiful golden color.

I agree with peppy- as usual.. looks like a buttermilk buckskin to me- you must take pictures after the shed! seriously- you gotta!

Thanks, the mother is Virginia highlander. The sire is a quarter horse. I hope to keep her and have a nice riding horse one day for my horse crazy daughter. I believe we ended up with a very nice little filly :)
