Yes and no. Obviously we don't want Castle horses with blankets and feather ornamentation, but I also think the piebald coat is specifically a Native American thing and wouldn't look right in a medieval setting. Like I said, socks, facial markings, and speckled flanks are what I was thinking of.


That's what I meant. They had spots on them. If we had some of them, as well as facial strips, and socks as well, they'd be very cool.

Alos, I like the tan body and black mane and tail idea.

Yes, but what you describe is a buckskin colouring which would not be found in a medieval setting either. Cool though, they could bring back some wild west stuff and I'd be pleased.

You read my mine. Consider this a second!


I officially third this notion. But other colours would be nice too.

I'd also like to see some more patched horses, like the old native ones from the Western line, but without the feathers, rug saddles etc.

I would like to see horses in different colors, but who wouldn't want pieces in different colors other than the ones available?

I voted "other," because I would buy all of those, plus any other colors they happened to release.

Why the interest in light-bley?

By itself it sounds like a logical choice, but won't it just result in the horses blending in with the castle or tower structures when it comes to photos?

Different colours is definately a must for me.
I own too many white and even more black horses. I'm even angered by the lack of reddish brown horses in lego sets.

So you don't photograph the bley horses with the castles. Photograph them in natural scenes instead.

I would be pleased if all of these options were available (dark tan and tan would also be great). Heck, the more horse colours the better. Of course, given that LEGO has had years to consider this, I'm still not holding my breath. What I don't need are any more white, black or brown horses (old or new brown). I kind of like the idea of tan or dark orange as those colours stand out a bit more from the current horses. Grey and dark brown really aren't that far off from what we've alreday got.

I voted for dark tan, as it's one of favorite colors that LEGO has put out recently. I think that dark orange would be a very nice color as well.
