What color?

Normally he's like a sorrel but his color has darkened alot. Its like a brown with a silvery hue that is circling his dapples.

Here he is in the winter:

His summer coat this summer:

Is he like a flaxen liver chestnut?
Also, what color halter would look good on him? Red?

I would say no to the red halter. Turquoise or Purple! :)

He looks chestnut/sorrel to me.

I personally like leather halters.

Looks like a flaxen chestnut/sorrel to me as well.

Leather halters... love them! If you are going with something other than leather, blue and green family of colors look the best against red coats.

Isn't he just a handsome thing! Flaxen Chestnut Tobiano Splash.
Blues and Greens would look fab on him. Stay away from reds, oranges, yellows.

His forelock is flaxen. If it were not, it would be red, like his body. His mane is white from the pinto markings.

Quite a nice looking fellow! Love the heavy set ponies! (All horses are ponies to me, even my 16.2 drafter, LOL).
