I'm a huge fan of bays. I love a dark bay. I also love facial markings. I guess both of those are the reasons I love Drift :)


I also love chestnuts with a lot of chrome. Whiskey is orange in the winter, and seems to have majorly faded out this summer. But I'm hoping he will stay chest nutty next summer with proper nutrition. I wish he had 4 socks instead of just the one, but I can deal :)

i'm a gelding gal. bays are my favourite, the more red in the coat the better. partial to stars and snips but skinny blazes are cute too. don't like blue eyed horses, or those that have white in their eye. bald faces, no thanks. horses with only one white sock look kinda odd to me for some reason, so i much prefer either both fronts or both rears to have socks, even height on the legs, or none at all. paints and pintos with lots of white are a pain to keep clean, lol. conformation wise, i like the warmblood look, and an uphill built horse over a downhill one.

Honestly I'm not partial to either gender. I LOVE loud markings, the more white the better. I am quite partial to palominos, buckskins. But my dream horse colour would have to be either grullo and red dun :).

Blue eyed horses creep me out, so I'll never willingly own one. Same goes for bald faced horses. If I want something with a bald face, I'll buy a cow.

My favorite color is chestnut with chrome. I finally have another one after years of owning only plain/minimal chrome bays and a gray.

I'd love to own a black and white paint at some point in my life, but if it never happens I won't be bitter. It's just that the little girl I once was has always wanted a paint pony.

Geldings all the way. I have no time for moody mare 'tude.

I like mares too- studs dont need as much guidance and geldings are the same way- a mare will make you think, lol.

Im partial to red cow bred horses, lol. Dont like a lot of flash.

I really want a cremello. Or a perlino. I don't know why, but I really do.

Out of the "plain" colours my favourite is definitely bay. I like pale palominos, buckskins, bay and black duns.

I like mares. I doubt I would buy a non-mare, unless I really liked them. There is a stallion I've been riding a little, and in the future, if I had money and he was for sale, I'd think of buying him (but then probably geld).

I like stars that are well defined and shaped. I like stripes or blazes that aren't too large or regular. Not a huge fan of white feet.

Do not like chestnuts. Except for dark liver chestnuts, like them a lot.

Would go for a paint in any colour but chestnut (or greying). Will not buy a grey, they get so dirty, and I've known some to have cancer issues.

It's "you're partial to." (Complain now, you'll thank me someday).

I like chestnut with lots of chrome (but not frame or splashed white). Also red roan and red dun. I like red

I am increasingly seeing the appeal of a palomino, but like a medium gold. I find blue eyes creepy and I am not a fan of pearlino or creamello. White markings are not a huge deal. I had a grey and the issue of melanomas would prevent me from doing that again, like wise with cancer in blue eyes with white faces.

What I have currently a field of bad#$$ browns, bays, chestnut and black.

Bloodlines mainly, the nicer the pedigree the more excited I get. I am partial to color though, lots of flashy color or a black horse. I've always wanted a cremello and swear I'll own one someday. Pretty horses attract me, a pretty head and an overall pretty appearance I'm all for.

Wow that's sad I didn't pick that up

People say to hold on tight to what you love-
especially when it's trying to buck you off
