* Colors are not always accurate on the internet, or from computer-to-computer, since we may all have our color settings on our own computers set differently than the pictures in this article were designed for. We have designed the pictures in this article to display as accurate as possible for the most common computer settings. If there is any question on the colors in the pictures, just remember that the best way to accurately identify a horse's color, is to see it in person!
