Lascaux[edit]

Every single "old" breed in the region claims descent from Lascaux. It's a very dubious and unprovable claim. Best to just focus on traceable history. Montanabw(talk) 20:24, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

"Chocolate"[edit]

Justlettersandnumbers, I am sure you realize there is no horse color that is correctly labeled "chocolate" in modern English language horse parlance. If chocolat has some specific meaning in French other than liver chestnut, perhaps with flaxen or perhaps silver dapple, or whatever we can discuss and if needed, note accordingly in the article. However, particularly in light of modern genetics, accurate descriptions are preferred over romanticized inaccurate ones. If there is a complex reason, let's discuss.
