We have an appy gelding who started life who knows what color, but is a VERY whited out grey now with 90%+ pink skin. He is ~16 years old. We only got him in October, but definitely he was not very kid-glove handled because of being white with pink skin.
He is fine. His nose area looks a bit rough at times during the summer; the old owner said, so she put sunscreen on him and made sure he had trees to go in if needed. His summer coat also seems quite thin, but again, he seems fine. :)
Funnily enough, his winter coat is very thick compared to our bay mustang and buttermilk buckskin. I can only assume it is nature's way of taking care of the horse who can't absorb the sun's heat as well on such a pale coat. :)
