I have a horse like this. He has pink skin, blue eyes, and is entirely white. He is a white, not a cremello. He has no signs of any golden or yellow color in him. I just let people go with cremello because they are convinced that there is no such thing as a white horse.
The only reason Brisco is registered as a cremello in his papers, is because they didn't give us the choice of "other" or "white."
Brisco is 21 will be 22 and is a very happy and healthy horse!! And is probably black right now because he is addicted to mud. Haha!
