Curly Colors

Curly Horses come in every color of the rainbow!  Curlies have been crossed with Appaloosa's gaited Champagne horses, and Paints, although Sabino is a common pattern in Curlies.  The foundation lines of Curlies, of the Copper D line, are all a gorgeous Copper sorrel color, which is a very common color in Curlies.

Rather than explain the colors, I would rather just share photos, most of which came to CHR through out 2010 Photo Contest.  Enjoy!

*Yes, I know this is not a true Roan, but a Sabino roan.  There are Roan curlies, unfortunately CHR has not been given permission to use photos of any of them yet.  So Traveler will have to be our Roan stand-in for the time being. Thank you for understanding.
