Yes there are white horses, but Silver Wings's horse is gray.

Another vote for grullo, or better yet tobiano grullo, there is one at a pay to ride trail place that I pass on the way to my lessons, ugh if I didn't already have 3 horses I would be SO tempted to ask if they had any interest in selling him/her lol

If I could "freeze" a dapple gray at the perfect shade of dappling, it would be my absolute favorite color. But I am really fond of blacks.

The cool thing about black, is that it doesn't dress up a horse. You can throw spots, or an exotic color like grulla or buckskin on a horse and it will make it look fancy even if the conformation is mediocre. But black doesn't do that. An ugly black horse is still an ugly horse. However, if you have a really nice horse conformationally, then I think nothing will show off that conformation better than the color black. I LOVE black Friesians, Percherons and Arabians.

Yes dominant white and maximum sabino. A majority of people who say "white horse" are referring to a horse that has greyed completely to the stage "white."

White, as in grey that has gone to white, which is where greys usually end up.
Silver's my pony, just in case you didn't figure out by yourself :p

I know all that stuff, I've read about it. I'm just calling her white because she looks white now, I know she was grey when she was young and stuff and got lighter and lighter 'till she looked like now.

You must admit she hasn't got this colour!

Sorry, I know I'm odd ^^
It's just the way I am.

Edit: @haviris: I know, I know xD
She looks dirty in my avatar though.. but anyway I know it's called grey for real, I just CALL it white cos it looks white, like I just said

I LOVE my chestnut sabino mare...but I really love bays...particularly black bay...I love the dark dark bays...with a little chrome. My RB horse, Pride, was as dark bay as you can get, and had just enough white to really make him striking...

Yes, that is why I pointed out the horse in question is gray. I was answering the other question about whether or not there are white horses. There are.

I thought in 'actuality' there was no true white horse, aside from albino, which again, isn't ' true white' either, rather the absence of any pigmentation/color at all?

There isn't albinism in horses, so that rules that out. I'm not 100% on this, but wouldn't a maximum sabino still have to have some sort of base colour somewhere?

Dominant White is probably the closest thing to a legitimately white horse, but there's like 11 known different genes for it. I don't really understand DW very much other than if any other possibility is ruled out and still no answer, then the horse is probably DW.
