    A true white has dark eyes. A cremello has blue eyes. That's where misconseptions come into play. Cremelloes always get called/mistaken for white horses when they are not white but varying shades of cream. A true white, has pink skin and brown eyes. JMO there is no such thing as the albino gene in horses. Albinos are animals with pink skin, white hair and red/pink eyes. There have been no white horses born with pink eyes. Ever. Only brown. Blue eyed "white" horses are cream, not white. Some have clear markings, like stockings and blazes and some are solid cream.. but still cream none the less.

    Ya'll are right, the first 2 pics are Nero, but the article I read didn't say anything about being 1/4 arab, I'll have to go back and read it. I just looked further into the last pic and it's a half friesian.

    Mountainhorse44, I've heard that cremellos have dark eyes and perlinos have blue eyes . . .

    You guys wondering about the Friesian registry thing need to read up on FHANA.

    They are very, very picky. This breed almost went extinct.

    Keegan's photos are in there somewheres.

    Your correct, mountain horse. There is no such thing as an albino horse, it doesn't exist. Albinism is shown by the absence of pigment, which results in pink skin, white hair, and red eyes. Any horses that look white are either grey, or a dilute.

    They've got nothing on the black ones :P

    All double dilutes (cremellos, perlinos, and smokey creams) have blue eyes.

    But white horses CAN have blue eyes, as well. Splash and Frame both cause blue eyes, so if you have, for example, a max white sabino that also has frame or splash, it can have blue eyes.

    Those chestnut ones are stunning! Someone should make another breed out of those I think. They are too good to waste!

    That chestnut (or Fox) Friesian's name is Molly. I think that last picture is part Appaloosa.. I've seen the picture before. I just saw Mystic Warrior (really loud Appy/Friesian as a foal, but has grayed out ((gray dam)) to almost white) on facebook today.

    Also, I'm pretty sure first generation chestnut Friesians are registerable because it wasn't exactly their fault, but if you breed one, its offspring aren't because it would be purposefully creating more red Friesians, which is extremely frowned upon.

    I do love fox Friesians though and that mare is just stunning.
