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!
