This first one, with the white swirling effect, is, as Peppy stated already, a somatic mutation.

The second guy is a chimera, he is well known in genetic circles and has definitely been tested to be chimera.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

The lady who owns the first horse has a page about her. I can't remember if it's on tumblr or where it was. But she is solid on the other side of her body.
