What colour please? Buckskin/dun?

Got a new horse this week and want to make sure when people ask 'What colour is he?' that I get it right.

I've got my ideas but wonder what you guys think

Irish Draught cross appaloosa

My take is buckskin as I don't see any zebra striping on his legs or shading on his withers (can't see if there is a dorsal stripe or not) but colour is not my strong suit. Either way, I like him.

Gray, and too far along to tell what the original color was for sure, but it looks like buckskin.

No evidence of dun and if neither parent is dun then he can't be dun so I'd say buckskin and varnish roan maybe has a small blanket as well.
