What color is this?

I have no idea where I am supposed to post this... But I don't know anything about horses and I want to find more pictures of horses with this color so I need to know what I am looking for.

So tell me what color is this and anything else you feel like mentioning.

Also what is the color closest to this (if it isn't a real color):


... And how well can draft horses jump?

I would say dapple grey but im not the best with all the little nitty gritty colourings :)

The horse in the second pic also looks closest to bay IMO

Draught horses can jump ok but I wouldnt count on them being grand prix jumpers :) I could be wrong there though

That does look like some type of gray.

The 2nd one is definitely. Like a bay, brown.

It looks like a Dapple Grey,
With some Blue Roan.

Its a tough one!

The first horse is dapple gray

The second it a strawberry roan. But the mane, tail and leg fringe ae not supposed to be gray.

I didn't see the second one.
That's definetly a Strawberry Roan.

But a strawberry roan wouldnt have a black mane and tail would it? Im pretty sure strawberry roans have chestnut mane and tails and the colouring, although looking roan like, is more brown than strawberry/sorrel...hmmm...im not convinced that one is a strawberry roan I would be more inclined to say its a bay roan

The first one is a Dapple Gray abd I think the second is a Chestnut or Brown. If it were a Bay, wouldn't it have black legs as well?
    01-28-2008, 10:02 PM
Im guessing its supposed to have black legs. In winter my bay stb legs get furry and go a light tan colour :)

The white speckking through the coat suggests roan though

Wow. I thought I would only get like 2 answers. Thank you. ;D

I never knew that dapple greys could be so dark. Oh well... Grey is grey until it is black.
