Ha ha you lot should avoid England. We don't have all your fancy pants colours, we have:

Bays (dark and light)
Greys
Blacks
Coloureds (including piebald and skewbalds)
Chestnuts

The odd Strawberry Roan and Palamino, and the very occasional dun.

Oh yes, and occasionally something appears with spots on, when it is vaguely referred to as the Appalloosa-type-spotty one.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Oh lordy, I don't even use all the fancy colors. To me, a bay is a bay. A sorrel is a sorrel. A palomino is a palomino.

Not a bay with the X expression and Y gene and recessive F;SHF;KASFHASLF genes.

It's called a counter canter...

When someone says their horse is dun because it has a seasonal "dorsal stripe." Your horse is brown, sorry lady.

I wish they had called brown something else. I think people would accept it much easier if they had said they identified the gene for "seal bay" instead. "Brown" is confusing for both horsey and non-horsey people who aren't all that familiar with color genetics.
