What colour do you think she is?

What colour do you guys think this girl is? My first guess is buckskin with silver, but I'm not 100% sure. Either way she is a cute and very pretty girl

I did consider that one, but to me there seems to be too much black on her legs and in her mane and tail

Sooty can do a pretty good job putting dark legs on a palomino



It can also make a mane pretty darn dark



The color just isn't quite right for a silver buckskin IMO.

Im jumping on the sooty palomino band wagon as well. She just doesn't look like silver buckskin to me.

Actually, I'm curious about her parents. She could be buckskin. This picture was posted on a facebook group I'm part of. She has to be buckskin because her sire is homozygous black.



I'm leaning towards palomino from some of the lighter pictures and her back legs do look somewhat blotchier than a typical buckskin's points would be.

I wouldn't have thought anything else but buckskin on the horse above, the tone of the mane is very different. That horse is keeping grey tones whereas the horse in the OP has a very muddy colored mane that i'd associate with sooty.

I know, I can't explain myself at all. It's an obvious difference to me but I can't point out really what makes it so.
