Sooty buckskin or something else?

Ok, I think my girl is a sooty buckskin. Her sire was a buckskin, no idea what her mama was. So is she what I think she is, or is she a fading black?







And a winter woolies pic for reference.



So...what color is this gal? This is a horse I broke out last year for a lady. Is she a sooty buckskin too? I thought she was but now she seems more red. Just wondering how varied is the buckskin color.

I am no color expert, but the dilute gene turns bay into buckskin, from what I understand.
So the shade of bay, would determine the shade of buckskin, so the one is maybe more red.
They are beautiful horses... Susan

First horse is a 2 yr old. Second is a 3 yr old.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Actually the first horse has more tones of a brownskin and not a buckskin in my opinion.

One is closer to God's heart on a horse than anywhere else on earth!
