Here is my new mare. I never thought I would get a chestnut because they are so common but I got her and I love her and think she is the prettiest thing ever!! =)) She is between 16.1 and 16.2hh. I havent been able to get an accurate measurement yet. She is a 9 year old westphalian that I am going to do dressage with and possible eventing. =)
For the longest time, most of the horses we had were sorrels and I kinda got bored with them. They are still not my favorite color but I can live with it. I really do prefer the darker chestnuts to the bright orangey sorrels. In recent years, we have somehow ended up with more browns and bays and until Bessie and Rafe came to live with us, only had 2 sorrels.
These are the only ones I have right now,
Flash, 27 year old QH.
Bessie, 8 year old Belgian.
And Rafe, her 6 month old QHx colt. He is the darker chestnut that I prefer.
