Colours and Markings

Horses come in a large range of colours. They also sport a variety of markings. These colours and markings have a major role to play in the identification of individual horses.
Coat colour
The basic coat colours are black, bay and chestnut. These basic colours are often modified by either a dominant pattern or diluting genes to produce a variety of other colours.
