Dilute genes are not albinism! They are caused by two totally different genes (just like buckskin and dun). Do you have a picture of this horse? An article about him? Surely there must be some documentation of this horse since every source I can find seems to believe they don't exist.

Here's some information about the difference between albinos and double dilutes:

Okay... I get that... I still don't agree with it.

And there are other uses for colors. For example, if you owned a buckskin stallion and promoted him as a "dun" and somebody bred their black mare to him hoping for another dun or a grullo, they might be unpleasantly surprised with a smoky black foal. Not that it should matter, but the client might be pretty unhappy with you.
