Hopefully I strike oil or maybe win the lottery(which would require me to actually start playing...) in the next year or two and have enough money to breed to him. After miss Honey proves herself worthy of having another foal that is :) he produces not only chocolate palominos, but stunning fire-ant red sorrels! If I bred Honey to him I would hope for either his gorgeous color, or a chocolate pally :)

I absolutely LOVE this:

I could go on forever... grulla, black horses with NO chrome, black horses with lots and lots of chrome...

My girl is an ever-changing bay :P

I don't know. I think you can have a favorite without actually owning one... without having to question whether it really is your favorite or not. Most people look at personality and ability first, then color- so it would make sense to not often have the exact color of horse that you want.

Personally, I have chestnuts. Or...atleast I thought I did. But what are my two horse's colors? Chestnut and Chestnut Tobiano xD Now I'm rather fond of it, and am actually hoping to get a chromey chestnut out of my mare when she foals.

One color I do highly dislike on any horse though is bay, unless they're very dark or very chromey. I love my trainee Noah to death but I hate his coloring.

A color that I absolutely love though? Pretty much anything dark with a bald face or a non fading black <3

My two:

The day I got him (sorry he's so gross, he came from a bad situation)

I have to say though that I LOVE our shetland pony Myss Pony's coloring though <3

OMG the last pony looks like it has Stella's coloring on the chest! Because we all know and love Stella

Haha, she kind of does doesn't she? She's actually grulla though, under all of that frame and other goodness xD we had her tested. She stays the same color year round, unlike rainbow horse Stella!

Oh, I forgot to mention my love of sooty palominos. :]

Like this one. Especially with that chrome. Mmm. I would not mind owning that one bit.

I think it's too hard to say what colour I like as I can change my mind like the weather. I always dreamed of owning a grey Arabian horse as a child. I have never owned one although I liked one and ended up buying my sorrel and white APHA gelding instead. Why? Who knows? I love his red coloration and love the white when he's clean. But, when he's not...arggg! I love the red tones in my Half Arabian and his chrome too. My black Canadian mare is like liquid metal when she isn't faded by the sun. She can be such a stunner! There isn't a colour I dislike.

I love a a bay paint horse. My cousin has a half Arabian bay paint - love the black, bay and white - he is gorgeous.

I also LOVE a black and white gypsy horse. I love dark gray dappled horses - sorry they don't stay that way. I think true blue roans are absolutely gorgeous.

Love buckskins - dark golden ones with black points and frosting on the mane. Love sorrels with tons of chrome and I love coppery bays.

The silver dapple horses are stunning with the flaxen silver mane and tail.

I now have a coppery bay horse tha has the tiniest of white in his forehead - Sarge has a gorgeous metallic coat and I also have a lighter colored palomino with a beautiful blaze down his face.

Oh I forgot. I also love tiger duns. Those tiger stripes on the legs and the withers get to me every time.....hence the fact that I almost got a spanish mustang instead of Honey....I still want a tiger dun though. The dark dun with black points ooohhh so pretty...

Yes yes!

I'm a sucker for anything that can be called "grulla." Of course, a gray arab sounds lovely.... <3

And Palominos... Mmmmm...

Gotta love primitive markings though.
