Calling bay roans blue roans. I HATE it. I know blue roans as a color are worth more and that's what more people want but it doesn't mean you can magically call your bay a black because of it!

Don't forget brown roans bring called blue roans.

People who think their horse is dun even though neither parent is. Or those who think their palomino is a cremello. Calling white horses albino. The use of the terms tovero and overo. Calling a horse completely the wrong color. Thinking every horse with a dorsal is dun. The BLM mustang adoption site being wrong on so many colors and big registries not recognizing every color.

I'm sure there's more that I can't think of right now.

I'm no color expert but there are a few things that get to me. Like calling my gold cream champagne a grey. Pictures are one thing, it can be hard to tell. But in person? And they want to argue with me!

People that think paint is the color of their spotted horse.

What bugs me most is the color registries, and how some people act like those are breed registries. I remember someone who posted on here a while back asking how her friend's red dun horse could possibly be a buckskin (as the friend was insisting it was). Turned out it was registered with the Buckskin registry, and was therefore a "buckskin." I'd say no... the horse is a red dun who is registered with the Buckskin Registry; when someone asks you "What color is your horse?" or "What breed is your horse?", "Buckskin" is not the correct answer.

Heard this conversation yesterday at the riding place I am Team Manager, and ride at:
"Chestnuts are really fast, because they always have long legs"
"Oh?"
"An the buckskin filly we have is so slow because she isnt chestnut!!!" - That filly has also been called taffy. She is in fact Silver Dapple Brown .

A breeder I used to be friends with one ARGUED with me that the colt I was buying, out of her mare (not bred by her) IS a dun, because his dam sire is Pally.... :blank: He is VERY clearly a brown....

My mum and I often laugh at this

Oh I hate the roan thing too. I have a friend who has a bay roan and insists she's a blue roan. Same with the greys being called roans. I mean COME ON.

Or, using dun and buckskin as interchangeable, or cremello and albino interchangable.

It's called a counter canter...
