A Horse Of Albino Appearance

This Horse Appears To Be Albino

There has never been a genetically verified albino horse as the albino gene does not occur in horses

There are two colours that appear albino. One is Cremello, which is caused by two copies of the gene that makes a horse palomino or buckskin. They have pink skin and blue eyes. Cremello colouration is common in many horse breeds

The other is dominant white. The horse is born white, unlike a grey horse that is born any other colour and turns white with time. They have pink skin and can have blue or brown eyes

Equestrian sport and activity is full of odd sounding terms and definitions like the term ‘Albino Horse’ which is why we decided to put together a comprehensive index of known equine terms, most are British , some are American and a few are specific to Europe

We hope you find our A-Z Index of Equestrian Terms useful

  1. Not Albino. The horse is white. Albino horses actually die during pregnancy if there is any
