Think I may have found a color.

Okay, so I've been trying to decide what color theme I should have for my paint mare. I think I may have found her color, but I'd like some opinions if it suits her or not before I go and buy anything else. Please and thank you. (:

i think it looks good on her! I love brighter colors on darker colored horses and if lime green worked well with my mare that would be what she would be in haha :]

Love the color against the black. May I make a suggestion. The nose band on your halter is riding where the cartilage joins the bone. It is easily fractured. The nose band should be two fingers below the jaw bone.

Thank you for pointing that out. I just threw it on her to see what it looked like, I still have to make adjustments so it fits her perfectly. I know it looks awfully loose on her, but I'll definitely be fixing that soon.

That looks great! I bet it's going to be hard to match though because its in between a lime green and a hunter green.

she's gorgeous, i loveee her color. bright colors are a big thing for me as well. it's harder to match paints IMO, as they're color has so much going on already. but i feel she'd look fantastic in neon green, or neon anything for that matter :)

Thank you for all your opinions, I think I am going to definitely stick with the neon green color for her.

Glad you picked a color

Neon always looks good on a dark horse.

Especially green, very cute!

the guy is really nice and the inventory constantly changes. If you want a specific thing in a specific color, e-mail the guy and he'll probably try and find it! He also ships to Canada... I got my yellow jumping boots here, and i'm SO happy to have finally found them! (yellow is such a hard color to buy for...)
