    Bay. Bright bay if we're being specific. Mind you, dark bays shine up like Conkers in the sun.

    I don't care what colour a horse is as long as it's the right horse for me. :)

    Duns are my favourite ( as my horse of a lifetime was dun) however after a dun I equally like all other colours. x

    The first horse I (properly) learnt to ride on was a dun! So a soft spot there!! But I also have ashiny pretty dark bay and a chestnut with flaxen mane and tail so those colours are also stunning ;)

    Chestnut with 4 whites, a flaxen mane and tail and a wide blaze will always float my boat.

    Seconded by a bay with 4 whites and a white blaze. (Jack has 3 whites so he's nearly perfect
    :p)

    Black always been black

    However I do have a soft spot for a palomino or dun/buckskin.

    Just refuse to pay the ridiculous money for one lol

    No horse is a bad colour, I prefer not to have grey or mainly white horses as I'm not a mass Very fan of excessive grooming, so if the horse was right for me and my budget I don't really see colour as an issue :)

    Clean is also a good colour. Mine doesn't roll in wet mud. She comes all the way down the field, goes in the barn where it is flat and dry to roll. No I didn't train her she is just a pansy!

    Silver dapple. I was lucky enough to own a very rare silver dapple Welsh Mountain stallion and he was a real looker. I'll see if I can find a pic of him.

    I love a dun/buckskin but I'd also like to own a chestnut at some point.

    Grey has always been my favourite, although I've never had a grey horse :(

    I also love light palominos, buckskin/dun, pinto and black horses (with an exception for my current gelding who is a bay ;))

    However, I will always buy a horse based on their temperament, education ect over their colour. If a horse I'm considering buying is a pretty/more rare colour, that's a bonus!

    If I had to chose then a coloured Skewbald or Piebald - we have both, plus 2 chestnut and a Bay , must say for showing then the block colours are easier with minimal white.
