True white horses are rare. Many legends and myths are associated with white horses

White horses, which are rarer than other colors of horse, have a special significance in the mythologies of cultures around the world. They are often associated with the sun chariot, with warrior-heroes, with fertility, and with an end-of-time saviour, but other interpretations exist as well.

From the earliest times white horses have been mythologised with exceptional properties, transcending the normal world by having wings, such as Pegasus from Greek mythology, or having horns, the unicorn. Some white horses are divinatory; they prophesy or warn of danger.

As a unique or distinguished symbol, a white horse typically bears the hero or god figure in ceremonial roles or in triumph over negative forces. White horses were held as sacred animals in the Achaemenid court of Xerxes the Great

In many traditions, the white horse carries patron saints or the world saviour in the end times, such as in Islam and Hinduism, is linked with the sun or sun chariot or bursts into existence in a fantastic way, emerging from the sea or a lightning bolt.

Modern white horses include J.R.R. Tolkien’s choice of white for Gandalf’s horse, Shadowfax, in The Lord of the Rings. Tthe Lone Ranger rode a white horse. In the Shrek series of films, the cowardly Donkey turns into a noble white steed. Taylor Swift song is White Horse

Horses with a spotted coat pattern are known from the cave paintings dating from the Upper Paleolithic era, around 18,000 BC found at Lascaux and Peche-Merle in France. Domesticated horses with similar spotting patterns have also been depicted in the art of Ancient Persia, in Ancient Greece, the “Celestial horses” of the T’ang Dynasty in China, and 11th century France. Paintings from France from the 16th and 17th centuries show horses with Appaloosa coat patterns being used as riding horses. They were also used as coach horses at the court of King Louis XIV of France. In the mid-18th century Europe, there was a great demand for horses with the Appaloosa coat pattern among the nobility and royalty. The horses were used in schools of horsemanship and for parade and display use.

It is unclear how such spotted horses arrived in the Americas, although the Spanish Conquistadors might have brought some vividly marked horses with them when they first arrived in the early 1500s. One horse with a snowflake pattern was listed with the 16 horses brought to Mexico by Cortez.

    No such thing as an albino horse.

    You are almost correct. There is no such thing as a “white” horse. Also, there are no albino horses. Usually if albinism occurs the foal dies before it’s born and before fully developed. Usually is aborted I believe. Grey horses appear “white” in color but have black skin. Cremellos and perlinos have pink skin and are both off white in color and are genetically different. Then there can be horses with maximum white patterns that look completely solid but are actually just have color covered.

    Oops, I read it wrong the first time… there are NO albino horses.  Perlino and Creamello (double cream dilutes) can be mistaken for albino due to their blue eyes and very pale skin along with white or nearly white coat (especially creamello) but they are not albino; their base color is red. Perlinos can even be homozygous for black and are always at least heterozygous for black; meaning their base color is black even though they appear nearly white.

    There are white horses. They are ‘Dominant White’ Genetically tested they are always Heterozygous (Ww) since White is lethal in the homozygous form like frame overo is. Also, maximum white sabinos can be all white, and of course a Lethal white overo is all white, but they die within days of birth. You are right about albinos though; there are NO albino horses. The vast majority of white horses we see are greys that have completed the greying process.

    No there aren’t albino horses, but horse can be white for a number of reasons. However there are no cases of true albinism in horses.

    There is no real white horse. This horse is either albino or greay, and the horse has dark points, which means, in turn, it is a grey.

    There is no such thing as a “white” horse. The mare in the video is a leopard Appaloosa, her spots are just on her skin. Her fur is grey. There are albino horses with pink skin and blue eyes, but still, not white.

    What I know is that, there are certain standards for a horse to be called or considered as white. 😀

    You can’t have a proper “white”, they are always reffered to as greys because they darken slightly with age and often develop dapples etc. I think you are talking about an albino or a cremello?

    You can never call a horse white, there is no such colour. “white” horses are referenced to as greys, even if they have no dark patches, just a weird thing :/

    You’re thinking of lethal white syndrome. Horses with dominant white gene are perfectly fine and truly white. If you look for the horse Yukichan, you’ll see that she’s actually white. Her skin isn’t pigmented like a light grey’s would be.

    No such thing as a white horse-they die if they are upon birth or before.

    No, what you call white horses are actually grey or different types of pintos and cremellos and such. White horses have something wrong with them on the inside, which is why they die. Something genetic. White is pretty much the same as albino-death.

    incorrect. They do have white horses. very rare. but they are white. like the 7 racehorses that have been white… yes white, not cremello or perlino or albino. there white.

    There’s no “white” or “albino”. you can have Perlino, cremello, Extensive Sabino, Maximum overos, tobianos, Certain appaloosa typs and greys. There’s probably more “White horses”. People will say there are “White” horses, only because they probably havent had their horses genetically tested. Some Tb’s that are born white are extensive sabino, as tbs cary that, and some are overos/sabino that can be extensive, maximum, or lethal white.
