Favorite Color (for a horse)

Im torn. It's either black, blue roan, or bay roan.

Think I'll vote blue roan.

If I left any off let me know.

For the sake of simplicity, I didn't include the pinto or appaloosa versions of them all, just base colors.

Hmm...I love MOST colours really. I really like dun, grullo, back and pally...
I think I'd have to say it depends on the breed. Some breeds I'd prefer to see in certain colours :)

PS there is no albino is horses

In this order:

Red Chestnut(with either no markings or a HUGE white blaze with any or no white on the legs)


Strawberry roan.

REALLY defined buckskin.

I thought I liked black until we suddenly got eight black horses last year. Holy cow. I like black in moderation. Thank goodness our stallion is not homozygous black.

But of course you know, "A good horse is never a bad color." ;)

I voted for Buckskin. But, I prefer like.... a really light colored one. Blue roans are gorgeous too, but Buckies are my favorite!

i voted for palomino as that is the colour of my dream horse :) however i also like dapple greys, paints and and beautiful red chestnut. and then if there is a true black out there, that will beat them all :)

Gosh, lately I've been really drawn to bay roans. I've never seen one but that only makes it more desirable.
