White Horse Names

Traditionally owned by royalty and aristocracy, white horses have fascinated mankind since the dawn of time, partly owing to their immaculate beauty and partly to their association with mysticism and metamorphosis. What makes white horses true white ( or albino) horses are the lack of skin pigmentation throughout their life, a pure white coat, and the fact that they were born this way, all-white; these horses are, however, very rare. On the other hand, Dominant white horses, also known as “greys” are quite common and carry off-color genes; no matter the breed and the color of their coat at birth, these horses turn white gradually as they age.

An easy way to tell whether a white horse is one or the other is to look at the skin around their eyes – true white horses have unpigmented, pink skin, while Dominant white horses have pigmented, typically greyish skin that doesn’t become lighter with age. Finding the perfect white horse name is essential to bonding with your new equestrian friend, but it takes a bit of brainstorming.
