sorrel or chestnut , whichever way you want to call the color... Red.
I do have other colored horses, but the nice shiny red horse always catches my eye first.

paint blue roan!!! sort of. Honestly i change my mind on this question constantly.... :) I mean, leopard apps are also so drool worthy. And sometimes I like the simplicity of a bay or chestnut.... or a white unicorn.... Gray dapples are adorable... paints with black and white manes....

Seriously.. I can't pick a favorite!!!

Re: any of my advice - Happy to give my two cents, but not an expert... just a girl who loves riding horses!

yes its brown. but since "brown" is not a color option for arabians most people call it black bay.

she is a classic example of a brown horse though :)

I like bays and their derivatives, buckskin being a favourite.

My least favourite color is chestnut. For some reason I've got it in my head that chestnuts are, at least more often than not, poorly tempered, flighty or aggressive. Its been my experience that i have never met a chestnut I liked. I've owned two and leased three and none of those are horses I'd like back again. There is a bit of "folk lore" surrounding them, which I'm not sure is true but its interesting.

It makes little sense but I now avoid chestnuts and their derivatives. I'll take a good bay any time.

In order, buckskin, brown and bay. No good horse is a bad color, but I like those three the best.

I'm not picky, as long as it has a black mane and tail. It's weird, but the only time I like chestnut better is when the horse has an appaloosa blanket on its bum.
I also have a thing for tobianos.

Not crazy about double dilutes, blue eyes, bald faces, or most of the "fancy" colors like amber, champagne, pearl etc.
