Sooty/Silver Buckskin?

A friend of mine came to the farm to see Parker, and said that she thought Parker was either a silver or sooty buckskin, because of the darker parts on his body/neck. I'm not so sure, but then again I know nothing of colors. Any ideas? I apologize for the crappy photos/videos, and I only have the one picture of not in a winter coat, and he was clipped.

He's not sooty or silver. Silver would lighten his mane similar to a palominos and he would be darker all over with sooty. He's just a normal buckskin. Nothing wrong with that!

I'm just seeing buckskin, but I would wait for the experts to comment before taking that to the bank! LOL

Yeah, I didn't think he was at all! My friend was insisting though :P

I'm happy with him being a normal buckskin, he's the prettiest boy on the farm (even though he doesn't photograph that well!).

OKAY so I'm no longer thoroughly convinced Parker is a "normal" buckskin. As he's shedding out, his front half is getting really dark, as well as half his face. We are all fascinated by it at the barn. What do you make of it?
Sorry about the crappy quality, this horse does not stand for pictures well.

He is a pretty boy - I love a buttermilk buckskin. He may be the kind that has a coat that changes a little every year. My palomino's coat is darker this year than it has ever been and I am thrilled but he is still just a palomino
