Dapple grey is by far the most popular colour and most old rocking horses are painted to the same basic design. The dapples form a hexagonal pattern of white centres surrounded by black which fades out at the edges. The head, legs, and some other points also have black markings in specific areas.

This extra fine carved Ayres horse has always been called Trigger - his owner was given him new in 1931 and she had been inspired by seeing a western show in London featuring Roy Rogers and his famous horse Trigger ( the original Trigger was a palomino.)    This horse was dapple grey originally but he and the stand have been overpainted and I haven't looked yet to see if there is any lettering under the paint on the stand. We think he was from bought from Harrods
