Horse colors and markings your partial too

So after going on one of those late night omg i wish i could have a horse let me spend two hours looking at horses for sale online episodes, i realized i was partial to certain colors/markings/builds.
I prefer mares (by coincidence i have only leased mares)
Will die for paints(especially black and white ones)
Blue eyes make me want to cry from happiness
Love as much white on face as possible
Not a big fan of chesnuts or white horses
The more unusual the markings the more i love them
I've had people tell me that the uglier the horse the more i love them
So what are you guys partial to one a horse?

People say to hold on tight to what you love-
especially when it's trying to buck you off

I love geldings.
My favorite colors are black, buckskin, palomino, chestnut/sorrel. Not a big fan of greys. I love socks and face markings, especially on sorrels.

I'm a fan of anything that hides dirt/manure stains. So socks on the back legs, white tails, greys, no thank you.

I always wanted a black horse, so I have no idea how I ended up with a white one instead.

Can't say I'm partial to any particular colour or marking, currently no 2 horses in the yard are the same colour. Have a sooty dunalino, a bay roan, a black, a chestnut, and just sold a golden palomino and a sorrel paint with a bald face and 2 blue eyes.
As for mares and geldings, 2 and 2 LOL
I would say I'm more attracted to a look. I like a solid well put together horse with a nice head and kind eye.

I love dapple greys and greys in general and I like blue roans. I love white faces and blue eyes and I think snips are very cute. As for mares and geldings, I can't say I have a preference but my two favourite horses are both geldings so maybe I'd be more likely to go for a gelding.

There are really only 2 colors that I don't like; gray and that orangey sorrel color.

As for particular markings, I like a paint if they don't have a whole lot of white on them. I also really like blue eyes in a dark face

For me, my filly has the perfect amount of white and a blue eye surrounded by dark hair on one side.

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/
