Color experts! What's ur favorites?
 
I know there are a few really good color experts on here who we all have had the pleasure of interacting! Honestly you guys amaze me with your knowledge! I have learned alot from you guys!

I thought it would be interesting to us color dumbs (lol) to know what colors are hardest for you guys personally (if that is possible), the hardest horses to figure out, and your favorite color!! And what color horses you have? Feel free to post pics!

U guys help all of us out so much! And you let us annoy the crap out of you with annoying and stupid questions! (I am guilty of that too), lol...

For me it's champagnes, but I am definitely improving with those :-P And appy, it does all sorts of weird things. I can see what pattern is there, but I never want to guess a base lmao.

I think my favourite colour, is a black silver dapple tobiano.

Like Chiilaa, I have quite a bit of difficulty with champagnes and appaloosas.

I like buckskins, grulla/o, & duns the best.

I will be picking her up this weekend. She is a grulla with a blanket and spots
http://www.horseforum.com/members/37...py-2-33117.jpg Base coat would be black I believe and carries the dun gene

This is Summer a buckskin with a blanket and spots
http://www.horseforum.com/members/37...mmer-32894.jpg Base coat would be Bay and carries the cream gene

And this is Maverick a black leopard
http://www.horseforum.com/members/37...av-2-33422.jpg Base coat is black

All these horse also have the LP gene and the PATTN gene.

I'm not an expert and still have alot to learn. I find colors very interesting. So correct me if I'm wrong :):)

Appaloosas. I'm not an Appy person and their patterns are ridiculous. I'm also bad with dominant white.

As for favorite colors, I get all giddy for a nice bay or brown tobiano and sooty palominos.

I also own a buckskin and a dun.

my favorite color is Roan, I LOVE a good classic roan, with really dark points :)

I would not call myself one of the color experts, but I am going to join in for the heck of it. I struggle with cremello versus perlino sometimes. My favorite is a sorrel with a lot of chrome or a black with a tiny bit of white. I have the Black Beauty complex.

Wheatermay 11-10-2012 01:08 AM

Join for the heck of it! LOL I dont care! :) probably know more about colors than me!

CowgirlMama 11-10-2012 01:26 AM

I like palominos and roans. (Not a color expert, but love colors. Does that count?)
