He's looks fabulous in those colors. He can really pull the red off which can be difficult for a chestnut to do.
I am a horrible color matcher. EVERYTHING has to match. It drives me crazy if it doesn't and I drive me mom nuts. She was going to put hunter green boots on, with a royal blue saddle blanket.
I've had purple & lime green, navy, purple & black, red & black, and now I'm onto black & pink zebra and black & turquoise zebra for 2012.
