Palomino; What color???

So I'm starting to lease a palomino mare. Her name is Gossip and her show name is Telling No Tales. I always have to have a color for the horses I've had. My old horse I had his color was red, and he was a chestnut. I've recently changed my colors to hunter green and burgundy, and some of my stuff is black. Do you think these colors would look good on this golden mare?

Hunter green on a palomino would be very pretty I think.

Do you think hunter green would be too manly for a mare? Haha.

Nope!!! IMO it's easier for a mare to rock darker colors than it is for a gelding to rock brights and pastels

First off, gorgeous horse!! I love palominos! I personally would do pink or light blue with her.

I think hunter green is a great color, but I also love baby blue and bright purple (Sandie's colors and she's a golden buckskin!)

The hunter green and black would definitely look good. Although, my favorite colors on a palomino is olive/sage green and chocolate brown.

Oh I hope not. That's the color I put T into and I thought she looked great. Especially with her "feminine" face.

Mudypony, I agree, that olive/sage green and chocolate brown would look very sharp on a palomino!

I always thought black leather with a red saddle pad looked really nice on palomino's. (but I think that looks great on everything!)
