have been trying to find a color chart or a site that could show me
the colors of the team of Chariot Horses, ( Grisled and Bay ), As
mentioned in Zechariah 6:3. I understand Bay as a color, but, what
is unclear to me is the color Grisled. Could you Please Help me understand
what color this is?
What an interesting-- and good-- question!
This is a long answer, I like long, complete answers:
Brindles are very rare
in the horse world, and it's possible another color combination
could be meant. Roan coloration is also similar to the word grizzled
because roans are a solid color whith white hairs mixed in. Other
color patterns, such as appaloosa and pinto colors, can also give
a grizzly look. Horses that are in the process of graying are
often a mixture of light and dark hairs when they are young.
Because of translations and changes to language, it's hard to know what the orignal word was. It's possible "grisled" either used to mean something completely different, or was a term substituted for a different horse color combination. There are many horse colors that are not solid-- pintos, appaloosa spotting, duns that have stripes, and roans that have hairs of multiple colors, or bay horses in the process of turning gray which might have been considered "grisled".
Use of the terms "Ultimate Horse Site", "The Ultimate Horse Site", "Ultimate Horse", "UltimateHorse", "The Ultimate Horse" have been in use since 2000 and use of variations of our name for any reason is prohibited.
