Many creatures are bred for colors. Conformation and genetics are far from the only thing people breed for, and I'm honestly one to support color breeding. If color breeding didn't exist, a lot of exciting colors wouldn't exist in the world of horses. As others have said, I'm sure she's already considered other things of her mare, and what does it matter, since it sounds as though she plans to keep the foal.

If you're not worried about breed, see about joining her up with a colored breed with strong color genes.

Seriously? So you'd rather breed two really crappy horses because of color than horses that are well conformed and able to do something other than breed? Interesting....

If you breed to a cremello, you will get a palomino.

^ As with any flashy-colored stallion, you need to be especially careful in checking the horse out to make sure he's still a stallion for reasons other than color. It's easy to overlook an unproven stally because he's colored.

I'd just like a general color idea, but I wouldn't choose only based on color I know a lot of good stallions of many colors. I'd just like some ideas on what would give me the most striking coat.

Okay, I was just curious. You can search "horse color calculator" online or use this one to see all potential colors for every, or almost every, color combination out there.

What color foal is your "ideal" foal? Buckskin? Palomino? Blue Roan? etc? We should be able to narrow it down better if we have an idea.

I can't believe anyone would admit to that! The only way color would be important is if you were breeding horses to make horse-fur coats

That is an opinion. Now let's move on.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Colour can increase the price as much as having registrtion papers.
I have seen many horses that were equally bred and trained yet the "pretty one" brings more.
There is a market for certain colours. To each his own. We as members really have no say in the process.
If colour is that important to the OP then I would find a Stallion that was homozygous for the colour they disire. Shalom
