Moody Chestnut mares?!?

We own a chestnut mare and I have to say she is alot more fiery than any other mare I met.

And i've heard the comment from many people saying she's a moody chestnut mare even the vet said it!

I was wondering if any of you had heard this comment? And are chestnut mares really more moody when they're in season than any other colour?

I had a chestnut and she was a witch but I doubt it has to do with there color.

I've owned 100's of mares and of every color never found color to have a thing to do with attitude. I think theres more Chestnuts that are but only because that's the most common color. The least common ones are Grullos but only because that color is the lowest in numbers.

I've heard this stereotype before as well, but I wouldn't give it any credit. Several chestnut mares I know are the quietest horses I've ever met.

I wouldn't say this is true, except our Chestnut mare is extremly moody. She is also 4 weeks away from due....

My old trainer said that too! I was skeptical as well. How could colour have anything to do with it? That being said, I know a very hyper chestnut mare, but also an extremely calm one too.

Yeah, I don't think color has anything to do with behavior. :) She's maybe just moody because she's a mare!

This is simply like red cars go faster than blue ones... Color really has no affect on the attitude of a horse. What may play a factor is that you own a mare, they do have tendency to be more moody than geldings. It is probably just an expression used about chestnut mare, nothing more.

Yeh mares are more moody than geldings but I do have two other mares (that aren't chestnut) that are really calm, but that i've met alot of other chestnut mares that are really calm too!

Oh and StormyBlues your mares in foal? Good luck with that! Our mare's only got 3 months left...

Hell hath no furry like a chestnut thoroughbred mare xD

I've definitely heard it before and it would be quite accurate for my mare.
