Favorite Horse Color

For all the reasons people prefer one breed of horse over another same goes with color. What is your fav. color(s) of horse?
Please no negative replies such as calling a particular color ugly we all have beautiful horses right?
My favorites are
1. Black/White ( yes I am a die hard Paint fan)
2. Grulla
3. Buckskin(all shades)
4. Dun
5. Blue Roan

My overall favorite color is roan.. Any kind of roan.

I have actually owned more roans than any or all other colors.

1. Roans (of any type)
2. Buckskins
3. Blood Bay
4. Solid black with white markings (I'd never want to own one though... I just like looking at them.)
5. Duns

But I've only owned sorrels, white horses, and a blood bay. Funny thing is, I've always said that I didn't like white horses... and then I got Tanner and Magic (although they're technically fleabitten grey...)

Absolute all time favorite is black, followed closely by bay and buckskin. Any color horse that is unusual also draws my attention. Palomino roans are strange and interesting.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I have always loved Black. I am also a huge fan of roans, buckskins, and anything with the silver dilute that produces that dark coat and flaxen mane.

Appaloosa's of course but I like their base color to be:
I grew up riding a white horse so I'm a sucker for those too, with or without spots
