The Color of Horses
The Scientific and Authoritative Identification of the Color of the Horse
by Dr. Ben K. Green
Mountain Press, 2001

Originally published in 1974, this important equine reference describes the coloring characteristics of 34 breeds of horses. Oil paintings by western artist Darol Dickinson illustrate the breeds in two main color categories -- those with Intense colors and those with Self colors -- as well as a handful of Dilutes and other colors.

Not every breed or color of horse is covered, of course, but the coloration information is well-documented and informative, and the paintings presented in this large-format volume are impressive.
