The APHA also only recognise 16 colours, and then say that APHA horses come in all coat colours.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

There was this horse (Ghost) at the summer camp I work at that is my absolute FAVORITE paint pattern. He has 4 high whites - all the way up to his body, the fronts stop as soon as they touch his body and the back leg whites join together under his belly, and a kinda bald face (wide stripe?). I just think facial markings like his are the absolute cutest ever.
Too bad he's a gray and it's therefore impossible to really photograph his white. Haha
I also really like how Ghost here is so fleabitten that it's not crazy hard to see his white. He has "ninja white" where it's there and cool, but you have to find it.




I also really like what sabino does to horses. That splashy look is so pretty!

I'm not a fan of most tobianos or those "look like a cow" pintos, but I firmly believe that a good horse is never a bad color, so I try not to discriminate.
However, sorrel tobianos/cow-looking horses get a free pass. Something about sorrel mixed with lots of white really gets to me. I'm not a fan of sorrels with minimal white though! Anything else can have minimal white, I'm weird. Haha!

I'm a little bit biased since my guy's an overo, lol! But I love tobianos as well. :)

I like frame and tovero. Anything loud, flashy, jagged, and outrageous. I also love blue eyes.

The only thing I really don't care for is pink skin around an eye. But I know that comes in a lot of loud patterns so I can live with it.

This filly was a really pretty color, even though she had way too much white on her face...and I'm sharing pictures just for all those that said they loved sabinos

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/

Whatever this little man is (splash? Sabino?), I want it.




I'm really picky about my pintos. I only like bay and white tobianos with more white than bay. I only like black (or other dark color) and white overos. I HATE horses with only a small amount of white markings and a lot of base color, especially with that base color is sorrel. Picky, picky...

I'm no expert but he looks splash and sabino to me. Very pretty!

He is splash. I don't think sabino because the white is over his eyes and the edges of the white look pretty clean. However, someone like Chiilaa will correct me if I am wrong.
