Can You Guess the Horse Color?


I know it's been awhile, but here is a horse-coloring test. But first . . . read on for a little history: 

The colors of horses have fascinated people as far back as recorded history. Long ago, some folks thought the temperament and intelligence of a horse had to do with its color. That’s not true, just as it’s not true for human beings and their variety of skin, hair, and eye colors. In the end, it’s far better to have a smart, loyal, even-tempered horse than the most beautiful horse in the world. “A good horse is never a bad color” is an old horseman’s saying. However, it doesn’t hurt when a good horse is also nice-looking. 

In the picture below you will find a brief description of some common horse colors (which have nothing to do with the breed of a horse). Can you match the descriptions to the photographs of the horses? (Sorry, the picture is kind of small, but I tried!)
You can comment and just list the horse colors with the number beside it. Example: Bay - 2
