Show off your chestnuts/sorrels!

Hailey1203 got me to thinking. Let's show off our chestnuts/sorrels. I always see threads to show off the more unusual or louder colors but I think our red horses get short changed sometimes because they are considered very "common". I am extremely proud of my red boy whose only white is the lollipop star on his forehead. This is Rascal and he's now about 12 years old. He was given to me as a "project" about 3 1/2 years ago because no one could even get near him with a saddle. He was started wrong and something scared him terribly along the way. He was literally dubbed psycho because he bucked so bad with a saddle on. Now he's sweet as can be and wants to do nothing more than to please you. He's quiet, quite lazy, and gorgeously red! (If there's already a thread like this, let me know. I just missed it then.)

Hot Zippin Chip!






Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

See?! How can anyone say that a red horse is boring. LOL! These horses are gorgeous!!! I am so in love with a sleek red coat especially in the summer time and like my guy, they so often have 2 or 3 different tones of red in their mane. The one of Chili snoozin' is so cute. Very cool shot. :)

Here are my 3.

Rafe, 4 year old Belgian x QH




With his momma, Bessie. She's an 11 year old Belgian.




I suppose that Tiny qualifies as a chestnut. He's a 27 year old Belgian mule
He wasn't too keen on having his picture taken LOL


And this is back in his prime


And then, there's Diamond....aka *******. He's a 6 year old QH



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/
