top five but in no particular order:

palomino (the lovely penny color with almost white mane/tail)

if the horse is brown (any variation - i consider, in this case, bay a variation) i'm not a fan typically. don't tell koda! hahahaha :P

Black (true black not brown or black bay)
Red dun
A nice dark mahogony bay
Palomino (the dark, coppery palomino not the sickly pale color)

1: Copper bay, like the color of a brand new penny with sharp points. LOVE it.

2: Bay paint.

3: Bright blood bays.

4: Dapple gray.

5:I don't know what it's called, but I've seen red chestnut horses with flaxen manes and tails... I've been in love with that color ever since I played Legend of Zelda as a kid
