Your Dream Horse

We all see the picture of our dream horse in our heads, so tell me, what do they look like?

My dream horse is a big boned 17.3HH hanoverian. Preferably gelding, but it doesn't matter. I want a rose grey, dark dapple gray, or a perfect solid steel gray. 4 white socks, and a big white blaze.

Black Swedish Warmblood gelding, 9 years old and 16.2-16.3 hands (bigger horses can be more difficult to work with steering wise, so I wouldn't want anything bigger than 17.1 hands although I'm close to 5'9 so no shorter than 16.1). I don't really care about socks or stars so whatever. Calm and sweet disposition but sensitive to the aids and a desire to work. Gorgeous mover, grand prix dressage(why not?) and has show experience. Barefoot, no health problems ever. Also would be able to jump 4 feet no problem. Bomb proof, wouldn't allow most people to touch him except for me and professionals. Very affectionate. I could go on and on.

I have her. I went through heck to get her... drove halfway across country.
(Clydesdale mare). She's only 2 years old... at 16hh. I love everything about her, but I do hope she gets a bit taller.

My ultimate dream poneh would be a flashy palomino overo paint gelding. He'd be the sweetest horse ever, and be an awesome western pleasure horse. And he'd never have any health or hoof problems, never have any emergencies, be an absolute doll to load and trailer and when the time came to sell him, he'd be an awesome profit and be an awesome horse for a little beginner kid.

I have my dreamhorse now and I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world, but if I could get another horse made exactly how I want I would get:

Thoroughbred x Paint
Palomino, Grey, Buckskin or Grullo Tobiano/Overo
Blue eyes
8-12 years old
Barrel and Eventing trained.

Yeah haha I am picky. But I love Junior for everything he is!

the black stallion-that long flowing mane and tail, about 16 hands, not a spot of white, so bright in the sun you have to squint to look at him.

paul is my other dream horse. that beautiful chestnut color and white blaze. i always dreamed of owning a horse who looked like him.

I have my dream horse- although when I got him he was a really big project- he had been badly handled by Humans(abused) what is worse-than a straved, beaten , wormy frightened colt ?

Strangely enough I have her now - aside from colour LOL!

But if I could change her colour I'd turn her into a dapple grey. I had a 16.2hh dapple grey OTTB with black legs (like a bay) but four white socks, black mane and tail. He was truly gorgeous. I still haven't quite forgiven my husband for selling him when I got sick but I understand why.

But Carolina is gorgeous and I'm lucky she's mine. I hope I'm her dream human.
