Today, my hubby took a grey horse in his lunchbag.
The Doodlewash prompt for today is ‘Battleship Gray’. I chose to do a gray horse because I find the subject of gray vs white in horses to be an interesting one.
That horse – gray or white? The answer isn’t as easy to figure out as you might think.
White horses are born white and have pink skin. There are no albinos – the genetics that cause albinism don’t exist in horses. However, lethal white syndrome is a genetic order that occurs in many white horses, and they die as foals, making true white horses uncommon.
Gray horses are born dark – even black sometimes. They have black skin, which stays black. Their coats lighten as they grow older becoming steel, dappled or … white! Most ‘white’ horses are actually mature grays.
You can’t make up stuff like this!
