Pictures of coat colors

Is there a website, or a place on this forum, that has photographs of the different coat colors of horses? I'm curious because since I joined here I have heard of all sorts of colors I'd never heard of before. If there is no such thing can we start one?

Here are a couple of sites that discuss the differences between the colors and what they look like, etc. If you would like to start an information thread about horse colors, I would be more than happy to help even though I don't have access to a ton of different colored horses . Keep in mind though that I haven't read all the way through these to check for factual accuracy, and even if I had, I'm not really an expert.

Horse Colors

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/

Not going to lie, Google Images is pretty much how I know what many different colours look like.

What? You don't have a horse of every color? Surely someone here does! But just for fun maybe people could post pics of their different colored horses with the color underneath, so that others can reference it in the future. I would put my two bays up but just learned from someone here that they're brown! Here is one of my brown horses!

That would be awesome to have a horse of every colour, but that would be a lot of horses!

There are a lot of pictures throughout this section of the HF, if you wanted to read some of those.

I would really like to see pics of all the different roans, grullos and buckskins because there seem to be so many variations and I'm not sure I know what they all look like.

1. Blood bay. This picture makes Poseidon's head look huge and ugly. I guarantee she actually looks girly in person.

2. Buckskin. Miss Abbykins, who the majority of you know. This was last September, she is no longer that fat.
