Question What colour is she? Buckskin?

Hey everyone, I am not sure if this is the correct section for this, but I couldn't see a 'Colour' section.
Anyway, on to what I am wondering. I have a 3 1/2 yr old QH/Appy mare, and I have had her for 2 years, and have never been able to figure out her colour. At first I thought she was bay, but then I noticed that her legs are silver, and her mane is black with white and silver all through it. She has some white specks all through her ump which I am thinking is from the appy.
She has striped hooves(all 4). I am pretty sure that she has pangare, which if I can remeber is a lighter colour on her underbelly.
So if anyone has some idea's about her colour or has a horse this colour, please give me some info!

Here are some pics of her. I will post more tonight, because her colour has changed since these were taken.

Her legs are a bit dirty in this pic, but I will get close ups of her legs tonight.

You can see the silver kinda of in her legs in this pic ^

Ok, that's all I have right now, but I will get some more tonight!!

I think she's bay too. I've seen some bays with small leg feathers that come in silver/grey & not black

Yeah I'd definitely say bay. She's not 'gold' enough to be a buckskin.

She is definitely a bay, no doubt about it. There are lots of variations of bays from Silver bays to Black bays (though I'm not familiar with them all, because to me a bay is a bay! :))

The stripped hooves are also an appy characteristic along with the light patch on her head/neck

Looks like a 'Wild Bay' to me xD My mule was a wild bay. Brown body, black mane and tail, but with silver-ish legs and muzzle.

Mine had a black spot on his neck instead of a light spot though :)

Shes very pretty. Id have to say bay as well. Buckskins are usually more tan/golden on the body. She has a more chesnut colored body.

I have head of a wild bay before, but she does not have a black mane and tail, she has a buckskin's mane and tail...

Her mane and tail are black, it's just sun bleached.
