For those of us who are feeling left out... post your chestnuts and sorrels!
I've been seeing an awful lot of paint appreciation around lately. I believe there is more variance in chestnut/sorrel shades than most people seem to realize. Let's show everyone the beauty of chestnut/sorrel horses!
Here's mine, a dark chestnut: (excuse the non-muscle, this was only a month or so after I bought him)
I'm so happy to see this thread. I love chestnuts/sorrels, definitely one of my favorite colors. I'll see if I can find the pics of mine (RIP). Now I've just got a bay and a dun. Miss my copper horses :-(
This is Ty, the Saddlebred gelding I used to have. He now has a cushy show home in Southwestern VA. His registered name was High Touch. He has both Wing Commander and Supreme Sultan in his blood lines. Unfortunately, his 19 years of showing didn't transfer to the trails. He was great in the ring...but hell on wheels on the trails!! He was 16 and 1/2 hands. If he didn't park out so well, I would have never been able to get on him!!!
This is my daughter's Shetland Pony, Teddy. He is the first sorrel I have owned, and I just think he is the cutest!
then my daughter riding :)
I never use to like chestnuts until I moved to my current farm and all she had for a while was chestnuts, and then I ended up with a chestnut mare and now my chestnut gelding!
My QH mare Malibu. She is a bright copper chestnut (when its not cloudy and raining...)
The Appy mare that I helped re-home, Lilly:
And my current dude, a welsh cob cross, Major:
The give me cookies face.
My boys are paints but they are a chestnut and sorrel
tried to pick pictures it was more about the red then white :)
Haha, I curse chestnuts because it's all I ever seem to own! Zierra's dam was bay and her sire was black, and of course I got a chestnut! She could be lime green for all I care though, her color isn't what makes her so special!
Great thread! Here's my chestnut beauty. =)
I used to dislike chestnuts because I thought they were boring colors, but I've come to love them and all their funny shades!:-) The first horse is my weanling, Mana, the second is his sire Phazons Fireblaze(he is 29 but I think that his owners could still keep him in better shape than he's in....:?) and the last one is Mana's half sister Andromedas Blazin Star.
