    I wouldn't pay more. You can't ride color.

    All things being equal to a non-colored horse concerning conformation, temperament, soundness, and level of training? Maybe, but not a heck of a lot more. Color is just a bonus, and should always be the last consideration when looking at a horse.

    If I had a choice between two horses and the only difference was colour, then I might pick the splashier horse....

    BUT...since I hope to eventually show a lot more, if the horse had a lot of white, I might go with the non-coloured horse, as they would require less work to be sparkly clean for the show ring.

    Since they are the same, except for colour, they really shouldnt be priced differently.

    I agree with SR. If I was looking at 2 horses that were both very similar in ability, temperament, training, confo, and bloodlines but one was buckskin and one was sorrel, I would pay a little more for the buckskin, simply because it would likely be priced a bit higher.

    Depends, I have paid more for my coloured boy then I would for a similar one without colour but I wouldnt have unless he was top quality to start with.

    So tell me Piaffe and Paint Mom, was color the first consideration for you when looking for a horse? I hope not, because otherwise no wonder there are so many color breeders who don't care about conformation, soundness, or temperament. As long as they have people putting color before substance, they'll always have someone who will buy their train wrecks.

    I'm not going to lie, I always check out the progeny from True Colours Farm.

    The day is coming when I will be working full time again and will have more money to play with. If in my search I come across two horses that are equal in conformation, temperament and overall health but one is a chestnut and one is a buckskin, I'll probably go with the buckskin, just for something different. I'd pay extra too.

    Ashamed to admit it but colour is flashy to me. Would never choose colour to the exclusion of all the important characteristics that I look for but hell, if presented with a choice and everything else was equal, yep, count me in.
