Thank you! Actually, I don't think albinoism exists in horses (that is what I have heard, anyhow) and Boo! was born a really light chestnut, almost a palomino, and he went completely white by like 5 months. From what I am to understand, cremellos start off chestnut or palomino and turn completely white (always with the blue eyes) and a sabino starts off as a bay and goes almost white, with red tips on the mane and tail (again with the blue eyes.) It is real unusual, I have been told, to have a cremello mustang particularly. We don't know if he is full mustang or half, the mare was a BLM mare that was pregnant when the lady who sold him to me got her, but wether she came off the range pregnant or got pregnant at the big ranch she was at before we don't know. He is really eye-catching tho, and I am picturing him in Native American getup, and he looks good!
Know thyself, know thy horse.
