Horse Color Chart

55 Favourites
I've tried to put together the most important horse colors for reference and inspiration. There wasn't room for every single pattern or shade, e. g. I left out blue roan, red dun or sabino, but I hope you get a good idea of how many variations there are in horses' coat colors.
The illustrations were done with a stock photo courtesy of GloomWriter. Due to abuse, GloomWriter has decided to remove the stock, which makes me sad. It was fun working with the exceptionally pretty Arabian Elfin :)
I particularly like the Varnish Roan, it turned out fine. The Perlino and Cremello worked out well, too. It's hard to see, but they do have blue eyes :)
Have fun picking your favourite horse color! And show me your work if my chart does inspire you.

Pintos aren’t blue

I don't think I drew him blue. Maybe you want to check your monitor's setting.
