The big initial mistake commited by the German registrars occurred when they encountered the case of the filly WOHER in 1925. They wrongly registered her as a "gray", instead of as what she really was: a "white".
This cropout filly sported a "stained white" phenotype, rather than an immaculate "white" appearance. But the thing is that many many white equines are born somewhat stained. Many shed their coats and become immaculate white but others don't. The filly, Iroquois Priestess, is a good example of a white Thoroughbred with a very stained white coat. For someone not knowing how the color "white" behaves, she would be labeled as a "gray". In some countries they would be deceived by this fooling appearance. But it is important to explain this to them and re-emphasize to them to remember that the genuine "gray" color can only be obtained through a "gray" immediate parent(s).

the big difference is also that these white borns have mainly rose skin and not grey skin like a grey horse does.

Eclipse (1855) is listed on Pedigreequery as bay but allbreedpedigree.com lists Eclipse as "perl."
