Smile Your Favorite Color? :)

I'm sure we all have our favorite horsey colors. Mine is a buckskin or dun... although I seem to be a sorrel and chestnut magnet... What is your favorite?

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Bay, definitely. And bay based (i.e. Buckskin, bay bay with a modifier.) Though not so much a fan of bay roan.
Most of my favorite horses/ponies have been bay based! First guy was a rescue pony, welsh type, solid bay with no white. He was adorable but was quite scared of people for a while. I got to help him get over that. Then a Bay Arabian mare, the mother of my Buckskin girl. Also scared of people and all sorts of stuff. I got to work with her on lots of that, almost got up the gumption to try to ride her but never actually threw my leg over the saddle, then I broke my thumb and couldn't do anything with them, then the farm shut down and she got sold.

My Buckskin girl, though I haven't actually gotten to handle her much personally she looks and seems to act very much like her mother. (Very old picture, she was about a year and a half old and she'd just stepped off the trailer from her trip to her new home from a previous owner {not the breeder})

Then this chubby little bay tobiano pony named....Chubbs. He was super pushy and not too respectful at first but very cute. He was about 10hh and I had to pick my feet up the few times I rode him.

Although my favorite pony to ride at the "pony place" as I called it was this girl. A very solid 12hh pony, a very fun ride. I always rode her with just a halter and lead rope. She could be difficult but I think it was cause she was kind of insecure. She was what I considered to be the #2, or the enforcer. Actually the huge head of the mare that's photo bombing her shot was the lead mare.

I pretty much do not have a colour that I dislike. I'll take any horse. But my all time favourite colours are black bay and palomino =)

I like the right shade of almost any color! But I absolutely love my mare's shade of grulla,

and I'm currently hoping for a buckskin dun. I pretty much love all things dun, but also love golden palominos, blacks, bright bays, sorrels w/ flaxen manes, etc.

may favs in no particular order

dark bay
grey w/black points
dark golden palomino with bleach white main and tail
roans (blue, bay, and reds[sometimes])

I also love most horses with a bald face or a really thick blaze, the more chrome on some colors the better!

I am not a huge fan of reds but I own one.

I love a paint of any color.

vv This one right here would be my dream horse if I got a choice.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
