I can't pick one, but my two favorites would have to be Blue Roan and Grulla, and black with a white face and blue eyes. I have always had White, Bay and Sorrel horses though. Right now I don't have any, but we'll see what the next color is.

I can honestly say that I love nearly every colour. My total fave has to definitely be a nice, smoky, brown based buckskin. I am also partial to grulla, and silver black. However, I also love most of the other colours - even grey, as my heart horse was a grey TB gelding.

Chestnut with chrome. Yeah, I know they're a 'common' color. Doesn't make a bit of difference to me. A well put together chestnut horse will always stop me in my tracks.

Besides, how could you NOT like this?

I love every color really. I kind of dispose chestnuts just cause they are so common but I wouldn't be put off one if it was a great horse. I love grullas, blacks, and blue roans. I also love funky paints and lots of chrome.

Buckskin, seal brown, and loud appaloosas are my fave's.
Never owned one. I always fall for the needy horse, or go for broke, or potential sane trail master. So I've mostly had chestnut, bay, grey, a couple black's, a palomino, and a few paints.
Maybe some day I'll stick to my guns and find "the one" but my three are going to live forever so hopefully I'll never have to shop again. MUST... STAY... OFF... CRAIGSLIST!

I have a real soft spot for a nice buckskin. I also love black, and chestnut.

I have NEVER owned a black of a chestnut, and the horse I've just sold is the buckskin I've dreamed of for EVER. Not tall enough, too chunky in build, and plain out not built for what I want to do with her... so for her benefit as well as my own I've sold her to a girl who wants her for what she IS built for. And will LOVE doing.

I have a bay gelding who is staying with me until the day he dies. The horse I had before Monty was a bay. And the majority of the horses I'm looking at buying are bays. I don't want ANOTHER bay, but what will be will be, and I honestly have nothing against a nice bay... I just will never, EVER EVER EVER have another grey. I had a white-grey purebred (grade, but pure) Welsh that was the most amazing pony but a nightmare to get clean, and then worse to KEEP clean - and other than Edward, I have never met a grey I got along with. So I'm just not a fan of the colour.

I'm in love with the silver dapple coloring. The chocolate body and flaxen mane and tail, i love it!!!! That would be my dream horse if i could ever afford another one. I've always wanted a black appy with the white rump, since my mom had a white appy with black speckles and a bloody shoulder. I used to hate paints (my pap told me they were crazy ) ironically i own one now LOL. I have two grays (one is more white than gray, the other looks almost roan), a chestnut with a good bit of white flecking, and a dark bay frame overo paint

I love a jet black horse with just a tad of chrome. Like a star and one white foot. It is on the very short list of colors I've never owned.

I have had the horse color rainbow. The only colors I've yet to own, aside from the rarer colors, are black, palomino, and buckskin. I've had almost everything in between.

At the momen I have a grey, a dark brown, a brown or possible bay when grown, a black and white pinto, and an undetermined pinto. Lol

I so lucked out on my horses. I've ALWAYS loved buckskin(Stallion of the Cimarron, anyone?) and pintos. My colt that I bought in utero is BOTH. Muahaha, be jealous. I also have a bay tobiano and a brown pony. They are my cute little herd of boys. <3
