Cream colored draft?
 
Yesterday I was watching RFDTV and some show, I think it was called Equestrian Nation, was talking about the only draft breed that is from America. It's always a light palimino color, and was called the American Cream or something like that. Apparently there are only 67 or so registered individuals of this breed.

I was wondering, what's the breed's name? Does anyone have one, and if so, can you post pictures? These horses really interested me, I wanna learn more!

It's called the American Cream Draft. This is the Association website:

ACDHA - American Cream Draft Horse Assoc.

I have an American Cream. =D Love him to pieces. Except he can't be registered and his breeder gave him away because he came out flaxen chestnut instead of champagne. It happens more often that you'd think because Creams aren't homozygous for the champagne allele. A lot of foals that turn out the "wrong color" are euthanized on the spot. It's totally wrong, but it happens.

Is he a true American Cream? I don't understand why he can't be registered?

Does the flaxen color make him not a true cream? I've heard they are pretty picky in that Association but probably because they are so rare?
