Light grey with black mane and tail ! My favourite ever colour horse would be a dapple grey with black mane and tail and some black on legs!

There is a reaaally nice dapple grey where I work but she has a creamy/grey mane and tail. Looks really good too!

If dapple grays never faded out, they would be my FAVORITE color. The only problem with grays that fade to white is that they are almost never clean, lol!

I've had two flea-bit grays, and my flea-bit mare had a foal who is starting to gray out, which I am really excited about! It will be my first time owning one through the color change. Both of my flea-bits where pretty well grayed out already when I bought them. So I am excited to see him change color!

I guess black would be my absolute favorite color, but the funny thing about black is that it really compliments nice conformation, but does nothing to dress up a fugly. In other words, pinto, appaloosa or loud dapple gray coats will dress up mediocre conformation, but black won't do that. An ugly black horse is still an ugly black horse. But a stunning horse looks stunning in black! Like Friesians, Arabians, and Percherons. I LOVE them in black!

Gray is my second favorite "solid" color. For some reason palominos don't get me excited. If it were a stunning horse anyway, they sure, it would look great in palomino. But the color alone doesn't get me excited. I do love loud pintos though!

Your horse has a kind of red in it too. Or maybe that is the picture. But I have seen grey horses with bits of red on their faces and bellys. Would that still be grey?

Great picture of the horse with the donkeys! The donkeys are cute and the horse is beautiful.

I was just telling my mom this morning how I really love grey horse. Dapples make them sooo cute too. I also love grulla's/grullo's since they are a from of grey horse

I only like the grey shade of grulla's'/grullo's though.

Like this! :)

Our Horse is considered a Blue Roan, so perhaps she don't qualify as a gray? She has brown, black, white, grey, all in her coat! I sure like her, and with the black markings! Is that considered "Chrome"? I am novice when it comes to colors and breeds!

Chrome usually refers to white markings like stockings and socks. I think your horse is actually a grey because blue roans usually have black faces. Does your horse get lighter every year?
