Favorite color, or maybe not?

I know many of us proclaim to have a favorite color of horse, though is it really our favorite?

I always say I love grullas, but if that is so, why are all of my horses sorrel?

So I question you, what is your favorite color, but yet again, what is the main color of your horses? Feel free to comment with the differences or likes?

I think this will be fun to see if we stay true to our favorite colors. Maybe after you look into it, you will see your true favorite color? I know I never thought about it until a friend commented on a picture saying I sure do like my sorrels... No, I hate the color sorrel.. or maybe not.

I like the color of horse that stays clean so im not grooming them for 30 minutes just to clear enough space for my saddle and bridle **cough**Charlie**cough**

I don't really have a "favorite" color per say, though I have always had a soft spot for blacks and it's my dream to own a super nice blue roan.

However, there is one color that I can honestly say that I hate with the white-hot heat of a thousand suns and that color is gray.

The color of my main and most favoritest horse in the world?

Yep, that's right, gray . Though in all honesty, when I bought him, it was with the sole purpose of "put some training on him and then sell for a quick buck". It was his personality that changed those plans. He's been my loyal and trustworthy partner for over 7 years now and I wouldn't trade him for all the money in the world.

Still hate his color though .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

My favorite color would have to be a buckskin or a dun... Although, I ALWAYS end up with chestnuts or sorrels and occasionally a bay. The only problem with that is, I think that they are so PLAIN! So, when it comes down to it, I think that I like ANY color, except a chestnut or sorrel. (Although, I am not complaining, because I love my horses very much and never want to see them go.)

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

i always LOVE seeing beautiful buckskins. or palominos or cremellos. i think they are beautiful. i like flashy paints. BUTTTT .
all of them are hard to clean. they all seem to be the ones that love to roll. it would be a pain for me to always have to clean the white on paints.
i love making horses shiny. i could do it all day. so naturally i like dark bays .
i have a sorrel horse though haha. hes reeallyy red though.& he stays shiny & i dont really have to do anything haha. i wouldnt trade him for anything. hes not all that flashy but hes mine.

I love blacks and funky pintos, but Alli is dark bay (mebs brown, cant decide haha). Then again she just kind of fell into my care, so I didn't get a choice what colour she came in... I supose I can choose between dark bay and brown...

I'm not so keen on plain old bright bays, probs cz theres loads round here. Nice horses, just want something that stands out

Here's Alli, dark bay or brown?

Palomino is my favorite color, but most of my equine friends are chestnut/sorrel.

Being horseless is the pits!!

that is a really good question you’re coming up with. When I was looking for my first horse I had the idea to do it the way than to look for a new Mustang. Chose color, engine, tranny and so on. But during the search, I was looking for a bay Appaloosa with snowflakes, I came to the clue that the color doesn’t matter. I found some ‘nice looking’ horses with an ******* character. So I dropped the color thing and re-formulated the search criteria.

I found Pretty Kohilent from Pretty Horse Farm near North Sea Shore. Although he was three he had and still has the perfect character. I do know he is chestnut…… not buckskin. But I do not care. He is a thoroughbred quarter with Wieskamp background, nerves like steel and a super smooth jog. And that is what is counting when you’re horseback.

To cut this short, horses color doen’t matter, you do not ride a color.
