I have a bunch of uniquely colored favorites, but I'll try to keep it limited. :)

My absolute favorite is the Strawberry/Red Roan.




And going along with that roan thing, the Blue Roan.



Anddddd....the Perlino. I just adore them.




I don't really have a least favorite, but I am not a fan of extremely spotted Appaloosas.

I love perlinos too!
my all time fave is bay, boring i know but i love them. They go with any colour tack and equipment!


another i love, flea bitten grey. hard to keep clean but beautiful all the same


and my least fave. would be the pinto (sorry paint lovers). I do see the attraction but i dont think they look very 'tidy' at shows unless they are coloured specific show classes, same goes for appy coat patterns

Silver dapple bay with a star and a snip. This stunnig fellow is Dímon frá Neðra-Skarði.

My least favourite ones would be brown. It's just so common. The stallion is gorgeous, however.

I love chocolate palominos.

My least favourite, I guess, would be grey but not because they're not pretty - they're just hard to keep clean!

My favorite color is bay with CHROME! I also like Backs, Duns, Buckskins, and Roans. But deep down inside, I have a thing for palominos. I own 3, all on accident.

I really like chestnuts and Bays...I know, kinda boring...Lol!! Chrome is a bonus, but not a necessity...brains, and decent build are a little higher than color in my book...

My mare...








Bay Tobiano filly I had several years ago...





Arabian that I used to show...still owned by my family...




My rainbow bridge horse, Pride...

I love the blue roan Tennessee posted. Beautiful! Basically, I don't like the "boring" colors; bay, chestnut, etc. I love grays, though, especially dappled grays. I love color, all kinds of Appy's. I do not like Paints like the one sdf posted, I like Paints like mine with more solid splashes. [Notice the other horse, my bay Qh filly, haha.]


I also like Paints with more color than white, like Spirit posted, as well as pali-paints.
