Everything about the animal kingdom is so large and diverse that you can’t help but be surprised. Recently, a video of a beautiful white horse with blue eyes named “Idalgo” went viral on Instagram, leaving hundreds of fans in awe.
Kristina Makeeva (aka Hobopeeba) from Moscow is the photographer who captured these images. She is trying to show viewers the beauty that surrounds us every day in the idyllic things around us.
She said that her slogan is: Today is not just another day. Today I will create something beautiful. Her pictures are warm, wonderful, full of magic. And she took beautiful pictures of Idalgo in a field of lupines, Moscow.
The entire Lupinus field (also known as tremosos or chochos) was used to record the video. In Moscow, Russia, the plantation was located in an area where these wild species are common. The pale colour of the horse pattern stood out against the blossoms.
In addition to possessing blue eyes and pink skin, this rare horse also has a magical appearance like in a fairy tale. Horses with a genetic mutation from their females and stallions are called Cremello horses (mother and father).
Cremello horses are cream-coloured with no stripes and white mane and tail. Cremello horses have blue eyes and pink skin, as well as other physical features. Do they look like they just stepped out of a fairy tale?
This horse appears out of thin air, like something out of a fairy tale or Disney movie. Both Rapunzel and Cinderella, or Frozen sisters Elsa and Anna, riding white horses. However, this is not the case. It was a Cremello-style horse. This breed is white with a mane and tail of the same colour.
Its skin is slightly pinkish, sometimes quite colourful and other times a bit boring. Many people believe that Cremello is an albino horse. However, that is not the case. Her complexion is as white as the snow in the video.
A horse’s coat colour is determined by the cream gene. It changes coats to black or brown, which changes the colour of the coat and mane colour to a lighter shade. For the calf to be born with the same coat, it must be crossed with both purebred parents. American Morgan Horse, American Quarter Horse and Akhal Teke are the most popular breeds with Cremello coat.
Many people believe that Cremellos horses are albinos, prone to skin cancer, or prone to burns. The horse’s white coat is made lighter by the cream gene, but this gene does not remove the white coat.
In their fur, skin and eyes, some pigments give them their distinctive colour. No albinism gene has not been found in horses. However, despite their ruddy skin, horses with large white spots are more susceptible to sunburn.
