Can't really see it unless you get really close or he is wet or sweaty.

    No I didn't mean that at all. What I meant was that in the 'snobby' horsey world, only Lippizaners are able to be called 'white' for example in sales literature. All other white horses have to be called gray no matter how white they really are. To me personally, a white horse is white and a gray horse is anything from dappled to a true gray. Like I said, I didn't make the rules and if I were honest, it is a bit of a daft rule. White is white is white and gray is gray.

    Thank you he is my baby! I got him as a weanling when I was 13 he was my first horse. Haven't really seen many horses colored like him in person.

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

    Would that not mean he is genetically black? I see he's also got them on his ear. My appy mare had these. She was a few spot though. So would it not mean he is genetically a black horse with maximum sabino? Because take out the sabino and he would have all dark skin

    Definitely CASHMERE BEIGE! ( we don't 'do' buckskin in England...only Cashmere Beige and they sell it in Harrods!) Absolutely beautiful, beautiful colour your baby is. Stunning.
