Green goes well on a bay horse, but I think a lot of people use green already. I like purple and pink on bay a lot. Bay can carry any colour really well though, they are the brunettes of the horse world

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I like the way blues, purples, and greens look on bays. It brings out their color really well :)

I've always been a sucker for a hunter green on my bright bay (now if only I could get the money to get some matching tack ), I always love to compliment their natural color, so I use a lot of dark black as a compliment color- it makes Indie's black points stick out more.

You can also look at some reds, sometimes they don't clash too badly and can really make you look flashier.

Edit: By the way, Kelly is gorgeous! Love her color and her build.

I think Lime green, purple or yellow would look good on her! She's pretty!

Hunter green, purple or burgundy are my favorites. However almost any color works.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I really like Yellow on my bay. But she is a bit darker than your bay. I also like pink on bays.

She's a beauty! Congratulations!
I'm all for classic black and maybe touches of white if they have a blaze! I think light olive/lime green looks sharp for a touch of color.
