The coat, mane and tail of a cremello horse is extremely pale and can range from almost white to a pale cream.  The eyes are blue or amber.

Foals are a light cream when born and any white markings are often visible but their colour fades to almost white as they become adult and any white markings become indistinguishable.

Cremello horses are the result of a base colour of chestnut combined with 2 cream dilution genes.

Although there is no true Albino in the horse cremello horses were often referred to as Albinos in the past.
