A Horse of a Different Color

Perlino ...

Cremello ...

Can someone fill me in?  These are double dilutes, yes?  Is it recommended to deliberately breed double dilutes?  Are there health issues?  Is that lack of pigment?  If so, is the lack of pigment genetically linked sight/hearing issues?  Who breeds this on purpose?  Is it not creeping up on the lethal white gene?

  1. Yes those are double dilutes. Here is some more info that you may have already found about the color, health and lethal white gene. Happy Reading
