Gorgeous Chestnuts...

So I always said I didn't want a chestnut horse because they're so common but guess what I ended up with...yup a chestnut.
He blew me away and now I think he is gorgeous ( I may be slightly biased haha) But I don't think chestnuts get enough credit as they can be just as stunning as some of the more unsually marked horses so lets see your chestnuts !

This is my tb Hugo...thought none of these pictures show his full potential, when he's prancing around the field with his tail flagged and his neck arched he looks 100x better haha :)

I love sorrels and chestnuts. Very easy to see the built instead of the color :) My favorite would be 4 white socks (which I love on any color including bays and buckskins) or no white at all on the legs. Hugo is very pretty!

Here is mine, Char. I favor solid bays, but I can't deny her.

I love my chestnut, but I'm lucky - he's got super unique (and goofy) facial markings.

Lol I had said the same thing when I was horse searching again. "im not going to buy a chestnut or sorrel" yet what do I buy, a chestnut lol. Her color isnt bad though, she's not that "plain" chestnut. SHe has like a coppery shimmer underneath which makes her color a deep vibrant red, but all the pictures I have don't really show that this is the best one I have. I really really really wish she was a roan, dun, black, grulla or buckskin, but until they come up with horse dying kits im stuck with chestnut.

Pretty chesnuts guys! My first horse was a sorrel. I haven't had one since. He had that gold/shimmery shine in the sun too. Kay26, that last picture of him walking off makes his coat look gorgoues!

Carleen, I love your horses nose! Make him look so cute!

I have never seen a liver chestnut, very interesting.

Reining girl, I swear I saw an ad on Craigslist in San Diego a few weeks back for a QH gelding, who had that fox racing type brand on his shoulder, but he also had another brand on his butt, though I'll be darned if I can remember what it was. In the picture, he was tied to a trailer, tacked up with a western saddle, and I believe that there was another black horse in the corner of the picture (got a bit in the side of the picture the person was trying to take of his horse lol.) Just had to mention it, because the brand is so cool looking. She's a cute horse.
On a different note, I've never actually owned a chestnut horse, though I did ride one for a bit, and I love them with stockings, socks, and facial markings, I think that they look so flashy that way.
