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?

Her mother was a buckskin and father is unknown.

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.
