Basic Color Help!
 
Could someone maybe help me out here. I just need to know the basic colors. (Black, bay, sorrel, chestnut) etc. So if someone could post pictures/descriptions of the basics, it would be greatly appreciated!

I found this the other day, thought it was a pretty good way to show colors. Of course it's not accurate but it gives you a pretty good idea (:

There are definitions of the colors on the bottom of the page if you click on the website:

Well after working so hard to post a little info and summery of some common colors I could not post it,no matter what I tried. I even took out the pics.
So instead I will just give this detailed link

Looking at pixel, like the above picture, is highly, highly inaccurate. That chart in and of itself makes my eye twitch every time it comes up.
