Perlino.

Description:  This color is very similar to white, and propably usually not distinguished from grey horses or cremello horses.  So there is no icelandic name for that color.  A rare color combination.


The mare is perlino.
Nett from Reykjum.
The foal developed into a smoky black horse (and in that way showing it's creme gene).

Some genetics:

 The perlino is caused by two Ccr genes on the C-locus, just like a cremello.  The difference between a cremello horse and a perlino horse, is that the base color is chestnut in a cremello horse, but bay in a perlino horse.  The Ccr changes all the red hairs in the bay coat into yellow hairs.
