What color do your horses wear?
5 Attachment(s)
I'm on this kick about everything for a specific horse matching. Ginger wears purple and Duncan wears lime green (I have to find him a lime green blanket for winter, and a saddle pad next march). Even my dogs have specific colors (the Sheltie I have now has a maroon colored leash, collar, and bandanna and i already have a bright pink leash, collar, and bandanna for the puppy i'm getting in June).

What colors do your critters wear?

lol i got some store credit at the local tack shop and picked up a bright lemon yellow saddle pad and matching polos... my dark bay mare looks SO cute in that color! Although now i call her a She also has a purple set that came with her and looks lovely. My mom's qh has matching red and orange sets (he's bay too)... he's got a fiery personality so it matches him =P I always try to choose colors that look good on my horse(s), and offset their color. I think darker horses look good in bright colors, jewel tones and the like. I love bays because they mostly look good in anything, especially the bright colors! I think my tack locker is the most colorful in the barn,lol.

My bay mare is in bright red with black trim. She also has a burnt orange set that looks good on her, but I like the red better. My husbanbs haflinger cross is in John deere green with yellow trim.

A few years ago I bought everything lime green for my sorrel, Arthur....halter, lead rope, saddle pad. Excel's eventing colors (he's also a sorrel) will be baby and royal blue. Molly (bay)'s gymkhana colors are lime green and hot pink. Lenox (dapple gray) is purple.

I loove Coco in a nice baby blue saddle pad. She looks nice in orange too because it brings out her bay color, but I still like blue better on her. ;)
