    We can rule a lot of stuff out. He has brown eyes, so he is not a double dilute - they would have blue eyes not brown. He has pink skin - therefore it is not grey causing it, it is a white pattern. We know from looking at other examples, that maximum sabino leaves colour EXACTLY where the colour is on this horse - on the ears and under the tail.

    I second (or third, if you will) the opinion that it is max sabino. While most max sabinos cannot be tested, you are very lucky OP. The most common breed that Sabino 1 (the only form of sabino that is testable) has been found in is in the Tennessee Walking Horse. So if you wanted, you COULD test him.

    I would test him for extension and sabino first, then if I was really curious about what colour was under the white, I would continue to test from there lol.

    I will make sure his owner finds out that he is very lucky! I don't own Cloud but always wondered what color he was because he was so unusually colored. Thank you everyone for your replies!

    I question the sclera still. I mean yes he has sclera, just wondering where he got it from. He may be purebred, but as far as I've read and heard, sclera only shows up in horses with spanish ancestry. My Nokota filly has it, paints, appys, and other spanish descended horses have it too. I'm just curious of where in the horse's ancestry that it came from, and if your horse isn't possibly a throwback from a few generations

    Don't Max Sabino's always have "eyeliner"? Though now that I look at it doesn't he have some black spots around his eyes? Would that count?

    Interesting, thanks for clearing that up. I know that Sabino doesn't cause blue eyes but wasn't sure about the eyeliner.

    On subject: I would say he probably is max Sabino then. :)

    I love the max sabino eyeliner though! Not only does it look cool but it protects the eyes

    Id say flea bitten grey I've seen a lot of horses like these and if he has a sabino gene it would make the flea bitten gray minimal. But that's what he looks like to me I see that color a lot in arabs. He also looks appy but can't be if he's registered unless you look down his blood lines and see if he has any appy in his genes

    He isn't a grey. A grey horse has black or grey skin, this horse has pink skin. That means it is a white pattern that is causing it, not grey.
