    Bright bay (with or without chrome), brown (sounds weird, but I knew a brown Holsteiner who was just gorgeous), golden buckskin. Stock horses, TBs (the old style ones with substance), warmbloods (Holsteiners are my fave), a good draft cross. Geldings all the way. Very much not a mare person.

    Stock/working horses--I like them around 15hh and thick so they can pull a cow--I also like them to be fast, so they can get to the cow quick; blue or bay roans, greys that keep the black mane and tail, and buckskins...gender doesn't matter, what they can do matters. I have two geldings and 3 mares currently.

    I love greys (especially dark and dappled but flea bitten too) and palominos, buckskins, duns and roans. My favorite breeds would have to be Arabs, QH's and TWH's so far, although I do love to look at draft horses like Clyds. I thought I was a gelding person until I realized that 3 out of the 4 horses I've owned were mares. But personality always wins me over in the end no matter what they look like.

    I love bays, plain with maybe a star. I've had 2 flashy chestnuts with stockings all the way around. My favorite breeds are thoroughbreds, warmbloods and apendix quarter horses. I fit well with mares for some reason

    I wish I had a clear answer, but I'm still figuring it out my self. I like pretty much all horses that are forward and athletic, so draft cross and lighter. I like a smart, observant horse with a big heart that loves to work, and has lots of personality. For practical mounting on the trail I like to stay under 16hh, and with a wider barrel

    So that leaves me with members of most of the breeds out there I currently have an arab that I love, and an appy that I really like. I have owned members of many breeds over the years. My favorite was probably a hanovarian cross.

    As for color, I would like to own a grulla one day. I like some chrome, strips, white faces and high white socks, but I also think a horse that is completely solid colored is nice too. I've owned some amazing colored horses with crappy personalities, so I really learned the 'don't pick a horse by its color' lesson. I like any good horse.

    And I'm a mare person.

    Grey roans and buckskins, friesian sport horse and mares. I find geldings are not there are at a emotional level with you like mares I have found.

    I've never ridden one or seen one in person, but I must say I LOVE looking at pictures of Gypsy Vanners and dream of owning one. :)
    I like heavier horses, but not draft breeds. I like muscular warmbloods, Friesians, Gypsy Vanners, and draft-crosses. Not that I've ridden one of those. I like Quarter Horses as well.

    As for colors, I LOVE roans.

    I don't have a favorite gender.

    I love Warmbloods. I'd have to say my favorite breeds are Hanoverians and Thoroughbreds. I also really like Paints because they are so versatile. Aanndd... My dream breed would be a Friesian.

    Colors: buckskin, bay with or without chrome and dappled gray

    I love Arabs, QH and paints

    I like all cream dilutes the best, but my favourite normal colour is bay. You can never go past a good bay I think. I like stars.

    Right now my favourite breeds are Australian Stock Horse and Quarter Horse. I like the look of Andalusian/Lusitano horses but I don't know if I'd ever get one.

    I like some individual mares more - but geldings overall are better IMO.
