What is your "horses colour"?

So some people (including me) like to choose a colour for a horse and buy everything in that colour, like saddle blankets, boots, halters, leads etc.

So what (coat) colour is your horse, and what colour have you chosen to suit them? If you have any pics of your horse decked out in matching gear that would be cool :) Especially bays, because I am trying to choose a colour for my boy.

i have gone through every possible color, for multiple different horses. Now i think i'm going to convert to black, it's sleek and classy ;) plus i have a bay and a chestnut, they'd never agree on a color..

My colors have always been maroon and navy blue. Its always worked with the horses I've had. So far I've had a bay and white pinto, a darker bay tb, a grey and white pinto, and now I currently have a grey Arabian. No pictures as of now, since I'm still in the process of replacing all the tack that either didn't fit her cause it was for my TB, or that I had sold when I sold my mare 7 years ago, and needed to clear out space. But I'm definitely going to be getting her a halter soon, and a blanket for winter, and I'll get pics when I do.

Sorry I don't have pics =]
Barcoo's (chestnut) colours are light blue and black. He has a light blue fly veil, rug, halter, martingale, saddle cloths, buckets and browbands and black bridles, jump boots and bell boots.
Joe's (chestnut) colours are green, black and cream. He has a black breastplate, green rug, cream rug, green halter, cream/green/black browbands, green buckets, green saddlecloths and a black saddlecloth and green jump boots.
Toby's (chestnut) colours were light blue and royal blue. He and Barcoo share the light blue stuff and he's also got a royal blue rug, halter, buckets and saddlecloth.
Maggie's (bay) colours are pretty much whatever fits =P She's too big for most things that I have (the expensive saddle fits thank god!) and I have to order stuff in from the saddlery especially. She's got two multi coloured halters, a purple rug and bucket but that's about it for her haha.

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

My boy is a bright bay(though as he ages he's getting more and more mahogany) and his colors are green and blue. His halter and lead are a dark marine blue, and his blanket is "bottle" green, black and white. Just about any color other than red looks good on him though. I actually have an english saddle pad that is eye searing neon yellow and black and it looks awesome on him,lol.
