Color has changed drastically from the early Belgian. Black, gray, red roans with black points, browns and bays have given way to the predominant colors of today which are blonde, sorrel, roans with light points and chestnuts. In all of these colors there are different variations. The white manes and tails are the most desirable. The white stripe is also sought after. This will vary in width also. Most all the colors do have light colored legs. This does not necessarily mean that the horse has white socks. White socks are more desirable to some people than others.
