What color is she?

well the title pretty much answers it all lol. She is with heavy winter coat as you can tell. I always thought she was buckskin but I have started noticing a dorsal stripe, she had it when she was a foal but lost it by the time she was 3 months old, now out of nowhere she has it back. Sorry for such large pictures

Buckskin. If a dorsal comes and goes, then it is caused by something other than the dun gene. Probably countershading. What colour are her parents?

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Her mother was a buckskin and father is unknown.

Yup. Definitely buckskin

That looks like a buckskin to me!
She sure is hairy!
Is something wrong with her hoofs? (just asking, I don't know but they look funny)

Another vote for buckskin. If a dorsal stripe comes and goes it's most likely just countershading/phantom dorsal as I've heard it called. My palomino mare randomly gets one and if you look at her from behind she could easily pass as a dunalino, without seeing her legs. But, she's just got a pretend-dorsal as I call it.

This filly definitely looks buckskin.
