    What colour would you call this?

    Seems as though things have moved on since I last really thought about horse colours. So, would be very interested to hear what colour you would call my mare - she's a Chilean / TB cross, supposedly. We're sure about the Chilean but I've many, many doubts about the TB part

    Then there's the gelding, with his funky roan-greying-no-idea-what's-going-on-there coat. He's a Percheron/Chilean cross. I'd also just like to point out that this the day he arrived - his hooves have now been trimmed, he's put some weight on, and his massive dread of a tail has been picked out and finally functions like, well, a tail and not a club.

    Finally, please excuse the photos - they were taken in less-than-optimal conditions.

    I'm no expert but the mare looks to be sooty bucksking and the gelding looks to be bay roan. They're both very pretty! Welcome to the forum!

    I'm going to agree with the above poster. Both very beautiful horses :).

    Sooty buckskin and bay roan I'd say too.

    Not buckskin for the first horse.

    Smokey brown/brownskin for the first horse.

    Second is for sure bay roan.

    What is your reasoning behind brown on the first? Out of curiosity.

    I'd say the top horse is a dappled dun/buckskin and the bottom horse a bay roan. Both lovely looking horses! :)

    Dun and buckskin are two very different colors, I agree w/ the first poster, sooty buckskin and bay roan.
