What a pretty mare!

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Oh well. It doesn't matter if the horse is albino or what. He's still a white coated horse.
Maybe you could use something like this.

keeping an albino clean

You cant!!!!
Cowboy magic green spot remover is quite good and Greased Lightning does well on the tail but dont get it on the skin and wear gloves yourself as its terribly drying
I have just turned my sparkling clean grey out into the field and in seconds she had found a nice dust bowl and is now covered in it. Please will someone explain why the 3 dark coloured horses haven't done the same?

Yes these are the pictures :) I don't know her parents, but she has no genes that control the coat of her baby if she would have. The vet said that if we would put her to a whatever colored horse the baby would get his color. That has been tested already :)
Albínói in icelandic is the word for Albino in english. The vets said this, I guess I'll just have to believe them :) the blue eyes are not controlled by color genes, they come because of other genes that do not work like the color genes. when she looks up in any kind of light you can see her eyes turn red because she has no colour in them.

thanks guys for the help anyway, I think I'll try to buy that cowboy magic spray, green spot something :)! please keep the ideas coming

If they don't have horses in haven, I'm not going.

My Arab would LOVE this in the winter!!

Thelma - all horses eyes reflect light. I understand where you're coming from but albino doesn't exist in horses. Some horses can look albino in part but they're not. If you're horse has blue eyes, regardless of the why, that is pigment and right there makes your horse not an albino :). Your horse is a mare, right? I she's an albino, her skin will not have color - her udders would be pink.

Thelma can you please post some head shots of you mare?

And can you tell us how its been "proven" that she will produce whatever she is bred to and what tests have actually been done on her?

DA - double dilutes have pink skin all over I believe.

first of all, this topic was not made to talk about my mare's color. I'm asking for advice here. I bought here some months ago but I was told that test were done, DNA tests and some kind of another test, and it's all written down on here health page at Worldfengur.com, were all icelandic horses are listed, their familytree, offsprings, ranking in competitions and health tests that have been done. I don't care what you believe, this is my mare, and this is what she is.

If they don't have horses in haven, I'm not going.

*shrugs* Not sure why you are surprised you are getting questioned about the color of your mare that is physically impossible as there are no albinos in horses. But do go right ahead and bury your head in the sand and refuse to learn anything. Good luck to you with that.

Thelma and NdApy,
you both believe the horse is a CcrCcr - double dilute; not a WW - lethal white. You're simply referring to a double dilute using different terms, and the Icelandic term is a misnomer causing confusion.

USA - CcrCcr = Cremello
Iceland - CcrCcr = Albíno

Quote:
Albíno - Cremello
Icelandic Horse Colors

Quote:
Cremello
Icelandic: Albínói or hvítingur.
Description: The foal is born snow-white with little pigment in the eyes, and stays that way.
...
The color in different languages:
Norway: Glassoyd hvit.
Denmark: Albino
USA: Cremello
UK: Glasseyed white
Germany: Albino
Swedish: Gulvit

Quote:
Double diluted
Icelandic Horses look very much the same, regardless of base colour, and are called white (hvítingi, albino).

Sorry for taking your thread further off-topic,Thelma.
