how can you tell the difference between a white and a horse that is gray which is finished being grayed out? Just curious!

There are not many horses born pure white, but grays will have dark skin under the white and a horse born white will have pink skin.

See the grey on the muzzle? Clear indication that this horse is a grey.

Skin color- horses that are born white, either due to maximal pinto patterning or double dilution, will have pink skin. (Double dilutes will also have blue eyes, horses that are white from pinto pattern genes may or may not have blue eyes)

Gray horses are born some other color (bay, black, chestnut, etc.) with dark skin except under white markings. Even as they gray out, the dark skin will stay dark. On OP's picture you can see the pink skin under where a white marking was on his nose, and the rest of the skin is dark.

I thought there wasn't such a thing as a "true white horse", unless it was albino. Is that just me or am I wrong? Haha

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

There's no such thing as an albino horse. Maybe that's what you're thinking of?

There IS no such thing as a white horse. That white one I posted? Really, it is some other colour with a white patterning gene, and it is one big white patch. That is what people mean when they say that. White is a pattern that can cover the colour under it.

Honestly, I saw the title and thought "grey".

The breed is known for being grey. Good to see I was right without even seeing the pic

I have a dominant white paint. He is almost completely white except for ticking in a few places and solid inner ears. Even though he's almost completely white genetically he is sorrel. He is not gray as neither parent is gray.

But miss Maddie here is a sorrel tobiano who is graying. She has a lot of pink skin but where her spots are there is black skin.
