Bald faced horses

OK, this post is entirely opinion based.

Do you like paints that have bald faces? Or do you prefer paints with dark faces and maybe a white marking or 2.

Personally I think bald faces are very ugly unless they are done right, if the horse is mostly white, if the eyes are brown (blue eyed horses are kinda ugly) and if there's black skin around the eyes.

The pink wrinkly skin around the mouth is kinda disconcerting too.

I prefer paints with dark heads, I think it looks a lot more elegant.

Remember, this is only an opinion post, so don't get offended.

Have you hugged your horse today?

I love my boys with the white faces!! But there are some ugly ones. I love the blue eyes, only if they have the black eyeliner around there eyes. Some blue eyes look so creepy!! Here are a couple pics of my bald face beauty Bandit!!And I added some pics of bald faces I would love to have. I just think they are gourgous!!

I love my horses!!!

Blue eyes can be a bit freaky, but I like them much better with the eyeliner. I generally prefer the darker faced horses, but I LOVE the chestnut/white in the bottom picture posted by Ladybugracer. I also love the tail on the other chestnut!

I agree with you. I can't stand bald faces, and blue eyes freak me out. I don't mind some white on the face such as a blaze, star, strip, or snip, but dont like the bald. Sorry folks.

I think some blue eyed horses are gorgoues but have to have eyeliner, but the reason i dont like blue eyed horses ,there eyes are hard to read, i raised one blue eyed colt he was beautiful and very smart..he was a medicine hat looked like he had a black hat on and few little marking on his mussel, and the crome at the flanks and on his chest..he is a mardell dixon grandson.

I love my bald faced, blue eyed boy :) I think his markings make him look like a cow.
