What color is she??
We just bought a new horse and can't pin point what we would call her color... Suggestions??
I've been joking saying she is a dapple grey buckskin but I don't know if there is even such a thing. She has dappling and Flea-bitten markings.
Based on these photos, I think she's grey. What colour her original base colour is, well that is anyone's guess.
However, good photos of her cleaned up will be more beneficial, she may not be grey but in these pictures she does seem to be.
My eyes are having trouble with those pictures for some reason.
It is possible to have a horse of any color go grey if they have the gene. So if your mare was born buckskin with the grey gene she very well be greying out.
She is grey.
Before she started greying, she was probably buckskin.

I wouldn't say based on these pictures what her base color was or not. Grey can do too many things to a base color that it is not "safe" to guess the base after it has been so changed by grey.
She is only about 7 yrs old so really not sure how much she would have greyed... and she is clean in the picture lol... that is her colors and markings. She hasn't had a bath, too cold for that, but she is well brushed out.
Definitely gray. Horses all gray out at different rates, but she looks about right for a 7 year old.
I say buckskin you see very light buckskins out. Since she has a dark or black mane and tail. Look on google images or something... she looks buckskin to me.
I agree with the majority vote of gray. a 7 year old's base is a big question mark, since shes had that long to gray. I know someone who has no idea what the base color of their horse is (and doesn't care really, she thinks her horse is beautiful either way) and when someone asked her base coat she just said Neon green or something ridiculous for fun :-)
