Day 12 - Favorite horse color

To me, a good horse is a good horse no matter the color.  That said, I have grown up with chestnuts and bays between the Morgans and Standardbreds, and while I do love those colors, I think my most favorite coat color would be palomino.  I don't really know why, I just think they are flashy and more rare than the usual line up of black, bay, brown, chestnut. 

The last time I was at Equine Affaire in MA in 2013 with Dreamy in tow for the Standardbred demos and a few clinics, I was stabled in Barn C across from a nice lady from NY who bred colorful Morgans.  Now, I am not a color breed person to be honest, but she did have a nice looking palomino Morgan of old style breeding that I liked the looks of.  As I said yesterday, I was worried I would miss out on my opportunity to own a Kennebec, so I had this woman in mind as a place to look when I was ready to buy a Morgan.

If I am ever in the market for another Morgan (highly doubtful any time soon, but who knows!), I will totally check out what is for sale because while she does breed for color, they are NICE looking western working line Morgans!

yes i love a palomino too.... but I do realize you dont ride the color :) But I also love Ellie's color too :) I like a chestnut with some white. She reminds me a lot of a couple of our morgans when i was growing up not sure i have any photos of them will have to look. They are similar breeding I know...But i can see you with a palomino morgan too :)

Flashy colors aren’t my thing but I do love when someone who breeds for color also creates nice horses in general.

oooooh i do admittedly love a pretty palomino ;)
Would you believe me if I told you palomino is not actually one of my favorite horse colors?
Yes, I actually love chestnut/liver chestbut, sorrel, palomino...all the variations of the color! You definitely have to look for pics!
Exactly! I am not big on flashy colors other than a palomino, and it bugs me when I see horses clearly only bred for color with hideous conformation.
Hahahaha, too funny! Which is why we can't judge a horse (or mule!) by its color.
