Some albinos have even brown or green eyes.
    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.

    Well, here it doesnt matter what colour they are just there performance.

    He died when he was young due to his condition (like guinea pigs do) I knew him as a foal and I don't think he made it to 1 :(
