    Hate the roans that are greys but I do have a bay roan that's turning grey lol.
    Also hate brown horses being called black.

    Ha ha! Yes I thought of putting smileys, but then thought it would be funnier without them.

    I don't care for the term "near leopard". It is a leopard or it isn't...

    It may seem minor, but it annoys me when my chestnut mare is called a sorrel. Sure, the difference is a little blurry sometimes, but the dark mane and tail are a dead give away.

    Eh, in the western world, chestnut and sorrel are the same thing. Although I've known a few people who thought chestnut was a dead give away to snooty. I don't like the color either way so it made no difference to me. :P

    Gotta say the dun/bucskin thing drives me mad

    But (even though I know not everyone is an expert) it infuriates me when they call my silver dapple bay pony a 'palomino' -.-'' it just drives me mad.

    My horse is brown. It irritates me when people tell me I'm wrong!! [he has a quite visibly lighter muzzle, he is NOT bay]

    He's only like 1/2 shade lighter in his armpits/flanks/underbelly but he is lighter. Mostly only visible in the winter... and if you clip him [late, once he's gotten fluffy - clip him early and he doesn't change] he goes almost black on top and almost buckskin on his belly, whereas a true bay is more typically going to be one uniform colour and shade when you clip it. He is also, considering his breeding [anglo arab, so obvious pinto patterning is extremely rare in the cross because it's rare in both breeds - though yes, the genes do exist in both breeds, the expression is normally more minimal], a reasonably loud sabino, but because his belly splash is right underneath him and small, you can't see it, so people think he's just blingy. I think he might have something else as well as the sabino, maybe, because he has 3 half-cannons and a belly splash [actually about 3 of them, and they're "patchy" splashes] but only a star/stripe/snip on his face and not an especially good one either!

    My mother is stuck in the dark ages with colours. If it has a white pattern it's pinto - she doesn't differentiate. She understands the dangers of OLWS and that it can hide in apparently solid horses, so if she was ever to breed she would test the mare for it, but she couldn't pick it just looking at a horse unless it was absolutely blatant. Considering I am anal about colours and getting the description right, it's a nightmare! Hahaha

    The grey/roan thing is irritating.. I blame the Thoroughbred industry for that! Too many grey TB's are labelled as "roan". There are very very few true roans in the Thoroughbred breed and those very few all trace to the one unusually-marked stallion.
