He never mentioned anything about mottled skin which is a big giveaway and would clear a lot of things up for the less educated people.
At least though...THANK GOD he keeps repeating that there are no Albino horses. People even keep asking, like dominant white for example, "so...is THIS one an albino then?" He just got done telling you there are none! ARG.
And a side question...is homozygous dominant white lethal? <.<
Be glad he at least know that there are no Albino horses. My teacher told us that Cremello was just a made up color that breeders invented so they didn't have to call their horses Albino. He was like "those people breeding buckskins started getting Albino horses. No one wants to buy an Albino horse so they decided to make up a fancy name for them" I tried to explain that it makes tons of sense that the people breeding for buckskin would end up with some Cremello horses and both colors are caused by the cream gene, but he insisted Cremello isn't a real color *headdesk*
My other teacher repeatedly told me I was wrong when I tried to explain the difference between the different Overo patterns. She insisted there is just Tobiano and Overo and told me if I didn't believe her to go try to enter a Paint show (or something) and I'd see that there are only Tobiano and Overo class.
She also called me out, basically making fun of me for 'not knowing what bay is' because I was calling horses brown, that she considered bay (trust me, they're brown ;D )
Almost makes me want to pay to have a bunch of horses out here tested, just to prove them wrong.
I just let it go though and then post links to accurate information on my facebook so any of my classmate that are interested can educate themselves.
