I would wait for awhile. My buckskin filly turned all sorts of colors until she was about a year and is now definitely a buckskin

Seeing as her dam is brown and she was born looking that dark and has shed out even darker, she is definitely a brownskin.

I though it looked like a buckskin before I even knew the father was dilute so DEFINITALLY a brown w/ cream dilute. Whichever you want to call it! Looks like what is considered a smoky buckskin in most circles. You could definitally tell it was when it was a baby too. Really light there!

The mare kinda looks black bey to me since she sheds out redish.
My old mare was brown and produced a buckskin with a palomino sire.
She's always changing shades
3 days old

2 months and she got alot more sooty

At 4 months she got some golden tones

This is her as a yearling and still every spring she gets a bit darker around the eyes and sotty highlights

Yep. I'd call it a brownskin as well. And cast my vote for brown on all the horses in question in the OP.

To me the filly just looks like a buckskin. But in her darker baby photos to me she looks like a sooty dun.
Also I once had a buckskin filly whose mother was a flaxen chestnut, and the sire was a black tobiano. The genes in some are passed down through generations and don't always show up on every descendant. Another example, sort of, is we had a sorrel gelding, I don't know what his sire looked like, but his mom was an average chestnut QH. His grandsire was Zippo Pine Bar, and he came out looking exactly like him. I mean, everywhere we went he turned heads, and every class we were in he got a ribbon.

Um. Am I missing something? I wasn't aware that a black and a chestnut could produce a dilute?

Well, there was probably a gene in one that wasn't showing but carried down to her

The gene had to be there for the foal to be a dilute. It may not be easy to see on a black horse, but it HAS to be there. It can't skip a generation, or anything like that. No way, no how. Cream is a partial dominant gene - if it's there, it shows. Only recessive genes can be passed down without expressing.

Sire must have been smokey black. That's the ONLY option.
