    It is the albino gene at work in horses, yes. Look at albino in plenty of other species, and you will see that it is actually more normal for pigment to remain but be significantly diluted. Humans and dogs are great examples. Mice, rats and rabbits are not, even though they are what we think of when we think albino.

    But I always thought that albinism was a recessive gene, by definition. Not incomplete dominant, like cream.

    It's the closest that has been found in horses. It's not exactly the albino gene, it's mapped slightly different. But it is the only one that really has the same effect.
