I don't actually care that they're called white. I know that. My point was that they are born black (usually) and turn white because of the gray gene. It seemed like a bizarre example to be using to say "You don't know what shade a foal will end up" when grays are always born one color and gray out from there.

Well I'm only going by what I have personally experienced and read up on. I have seen brown foals turn a few shades lighter when they have matured, I have seen Lippizaners turn 'white' (gray) LOL and my Clydedsale was born a beautiful dark brown. As he is getting older he is starting to become more and more roan. I think it depends on the breed or the heritage of the horses in question. Some babies do change shade as they get older and grow their adult coat but it really does depend on the breed. Other babies will stay roughly the same. I'm not arguing. Anyway, I have to insist that the colour of the foal in the original thread has to be named CASHMERE BEIGE ...not buckskin...not dun....and he has to be called HARRODS because he looks so posh! He's lovely. LOL

Absolutely right that Lippizaners are genetically gray but they are still known as 'white horses'. Back in the late 1960s and 70s there was even a TV programme in europe made about them called 'White Horses' . You can never call a Lippizaner gray to someone from The Spanish Riding School. It is a major faux pas...LOL WHITE HORSES ...Enjoy .

I get that but it sounded to me like you said there are no other white horses in the world only grey. I own a horse that is almost completely white except for the inside of his ears which is red and he has a little bit of red ticking on his shoulders flanks and rump but you don't get much whiter than him . Can't really see it unless you get really close or he is wet or sweaty.

Foal
Their are white horses most "white" horses have black skin witch makes them gray but pink skinned horses with a white coat are considered white they are not as common as flea bit grays. Lippizaners in are gray as they are born black and most of the time Fade to a white

Yeah pepper is pink skinned head to toe except a few black spots of pigment around his chest and hind end. Some people mistake him for an appy because he has varried sizes of black spots on his hind end and they become visible when he sweats. I'm glad he has those though gives him extra sun protection but we still need lots of sun block in the summer. But at least he has natural eye liner


You can see the black spots in his skin here
