Yes maximum sabino and all white dominant white horses have base colors just like every other horse.

These genetics are all just ridiculous.

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.
There IS albinism in horses! What else would you call this one?

Besides, it's true what an earlier post said, about there being no true white horses.
I'm not good with gene-stuff, so I can't really talk about this, to be honest

I'm pretty sure I had seen that horse as part of the "American Albino" breed and the URL confirmed that. I can't remember what colour they actually are; I want to say it's part of DW, but I can't remember right now. I'll go look it up.

It's dominant white Po.

For it to be a true albino Silver, it needs to have pink/red eyes as well as lack of pigment else where.

Don't feel stupid. That wasn't our intent. How else would we learn other than from mistakes or research?

Don't feel stupid. Horse colour genetics is quite possible one of the most complicated and confusing things I have ever seen. I said before: There are 11 known types of Dominant White. God knows how many there are actually are.

I found out yesterday from another thread that there is a colour called Sable Cream, apparently.
