Looks like a very classic looking smokey black to me. There is a possibility of a sooty buckskin, but If I had to call it I would say smokey black.
I don't see any indication of silver dapple. Any time I've seen the silver dapple on a black base horse there tends to be more impact on the mane than the rest of the body, which is not the case here. I think you are just dealing on the creme gene here and will just have to get tested for the agouti gene to answer the question on black or buckskin.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
