The Cremello Akhal-Teke   amzing-horse-breeds-0

his Ahkal-Teke horse makes the rounds on the internet, so I thought I’d show you guys some of the other awesome colors horses can come in. This is cremello, a creme color base with blue eyes, but not albino or white. This is a result of the creme dilution gene, which has several variations.

Dappled Grey   amzing-horse-breeds-1
