I don't like most flashy colors either. I do like palominos, but conformation will always be FAR more important than color for me. When I was 14 or 15 there was a filly born at the barn I was boarding at. She was a very well bred filly and extremely well put together. I remember when the BM came over to the stall to look at her. All he said was, "too bad she's red." I couldn't believe my ears. I thought she was lovely. I tend to prefer darn browns and bays. They're just very clean, classy, and professional looking to me. But honestly, color means next to nothing if I'm [window] shopping.
