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.
    For the snobs, I suppose so. But they need to get off their high horses (so to speak) and actually accept the fact that saying a horse is white doesn't make it special. All horses should be special. Doesn't matter what you cal them. Grey, to me and most others who know genetics, is anywhere from the first stages to completely white. True white (besides maximum-expressed dominant white) doesn't really exist. "White is white and grey is grey" in terms of visual color only, maybe...but colorwise genetically Lipizanner whites, Andalusian greys, Thoroughbred dapples they're the same color (except the base they were born as).

Those horses because they are all white have pink skin or like Pepper for instance he is 98% white with a few red ticking hairs and where those red hairs are/were you get black mottling. I guess I'm confused about what your confused about lol.

    Hahaha I agree. I see I made a huge mistake last time I was on here about colours n dilutions. But what I meant by true whites is there is supposedly occasionally something happens during gestation, and the white foal is a result of it. I forget what it's called and what it is exactly though
