Default Cremellos

Can anyone give me info on cremellos?
Do they get as dirty as Greys?
Are they prone to sunburn?
Do they get greasy heel moreso than other horses? (I had a horse with 4 white socks and he used to get it from sunburn in summer! Drove me batty)
Thanks

Had a Cremello stallion, he went thru summer unrugged & never noticed him burning.
However my Pintos, or ponies with lots of white on their noses burnt.
My Perlino mare doesn't burn either.

Any horse can get as dirty as the next, just lighter colours show up more dirt/mud LOL.

Thats strange,
Ive had two horses with white noses and both have had to have extended nose flyveils as they burned to a crisp.

The dirt thing is funny as I read on the internet a few people claiming their cremellos kept clean as they had a different sort of smooth coat?? Thought it was BS. hehehe

They don't get dirtier, you just see it more and because they have pink skin you can't get away with a half hearted wash job either.....

Even tho they have pink skin it still has pigment - it's just diluted. This pigment helps prevent them burning in the sun. The pink skin under white markings on the other hand doesn't have pigment so it burns.

Ditto for greasy heel.

I have a perlino, she gets as dirty as my other horses, but she dosent seem to get a thick coat like my other horses. she never gets sunburnt but has a sheet on through summer just the same as my bay, and Buckskin and wears a flyveil in summer, same with the greasy heel, never had it.

i love my Perlino even if it's a bit more work when showing her to get her looking good but well worth it.

Hope this helps :-)

Thumbs up

Dakota
Double dilutes don't get sunburnt which is a bonus
You should know though that their vision is not as good as solid coloured horses.

I find them very hardy horses

mine have never been sunburnt or had greasy heel ... while under the same conditions the chestnuts with chrome have

the washing part is a bugger.. definately no quicky washes

my favorite dirty boy ... i do find in summer he stays pretty clean looking but when you pat him he is filthy underneath... his coat has a real pearl iridescent quality
