About American Albino HorsesAbout American Albino Horses



America 'albino' horses arernactually not true albinos but instead they are what the American Albino HorsernClub (now known as the White Horse Club) calls Dominant White. A Dominant Whiterncan be any horse, Quarter, Arabian, Standardbred, etc., that has a white coatrnwith pink skin and dark eyes - black, brown, or blue. A true albino would, ofrncourse, have pink eyes, meaning the Dominant White actually carries off-colorrngenes. Given the White Horse Club's immaculate records, breeding for thisrnparticular horse has become an almost exact science. Even still, thernqualification of dark eyes requires parents who carry genes for off-colorrncoats, thereby creating a 5 percent chance that the off-spring will carry somernoff-color.

The main physicalrncharacteristic of the American Albino is a white coat, white tail and mane,rnpink skin, and black, brown, or dark blue eyes. Outside of coloration, thernAmerican Albino is separated into a stock type horse, saddle horse type, andrnArabian type, with separate categories for ponies. The stock and saddle typernstand around 15.2 hands high, with the Arabian type being slightly shorter.rnBecause the American Albino is actually a color breed, it can carry therncharacteristics of its sires, whether Quarter horse, Arabian, Morgan, orrnThoroughbred. For the most part they are known to be smart, tractable, and evenrntempered.

American Albino horses, basedrnaround coloration rather than conformation or pure-blooded breeding, actuallyrnfollows the origins of whatever horse is being bred. The American Albino HorsernClub was formed in 1937 on the White Horse Ranch near Naper, Nebraska. OldrnKing, a white stallion with pink skin and brown eyes, is said to be thernfoundation horse for the American Albino. Although his background goesrnuntraced, he is believed to be predominantly of Arabian stock with some Morgan.rnOld King's off-spring tended to follow his color pattern when crossed withrnMorgans of any color. Since its foundation, the AAHC has made strict breedingrnstandards in an effort to keep a pure white horse. In 1970, the AAHC became thernWhite Horse Club and, at the same time, split to form another classification,rnthe American Cream, for those horses with touches of color.
