What color do you like to see on a Dapple Grey?

First off, THIS IS A RESCUE HORSE... please do not jump on me for how thin he is, how he needs to gain weight, etc etc. If you have advice on how to put weight on him, I have a thread for that Advice on emaciated tb needed

I am 99% sure I'm going to get this guy. My question is, what color tack would you put on him? I was starting to buy all turquoise (think Pro Choice SMB turquoise) for Cinny and a LOT of that stuff will fit this guy too. I had accidentally bought a turquoise halter in TB size (the website said reg horse size) and well...it should fit this guy too. Do you think turquoise would look good on him too.... or do you like to see a different color on dapple grays?

BTW, he is a tad darker than in the picture.

I think turquoise is a good color.

My personal favorite on grey's like him is a red/yellow combination like Skip Away used to wear.

Maroon! Or turquoise if you are really set on that.
