American Breeds of Horse

See users pictures


Albino is a type of colouring which can occur in horses anywhere in the world. However, in America Albinos are bred deliberately and through selective breeding the Albino horse regularly occurs. An Albino has pink skin, a pure white coat and often pale eyes. Unfortunately there is often a price to pay for achieving Albino colour, because the pale colour is produced through a congenital lack of pigmentation in the skin. These horses often have poor or defective site and suffer from sensitivity to the sun. The American Albino is believed to descend from one sire named Old King who was thought to contain Arab and Morgan blood. There is no particular 'type' they occur in many different shapes and sizes.
