albinism

A genetic disorder causing a total lack of colour pigment throughout the body, this manifests in the skin, the hair and the eyes. In horses genetically only a heterozygous albino is possible (the albino gene comes from only one parent), as a homozygous albino (the albino gene comes from both parents) is not viable due to a malformation of the digestive tract.
