I think it depends entirely on the individual horse. I have seen some that are absolutely gorgeous and others with nearly identical markings that just looked funky. I think a lot of it has to do with the horse's head conformation as well. I really don't care either way about blue eyes but I will say that blue eyes on a solid colored head is really striking.

I thought Prissy had a very unique bald face. One of her eyes was half blue and half brown. I can't remember now which one it was though. LOL.


Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I love bald faces and blue eyes (as long as the skin around the eyes isnt pink) Only down side is I have one that sunburns, so it makes me not want another one.

This is my mare Tuesday Skye..:)

I like both. For bald faces though I like the blue eyes, or at least one, with black eye liner. Don't really like the pink around the eyes that much. A dark face with blue eyes is pretty too, but you generally don't see those to often.

I've spent most my life riding horses...the rest i've just wasted.

Sandie has a bald face and I think she's beautiful

a QH paint cross at my barn has a bald face, she's entirely chestnut, except she has 2 white socks and a bald face with brown eyes, and she is a very good looking horse
I like how it looks sometimes, like, I like the look on "Kassidy" but not all horses with bald faces

I like alot of white, but not fully bald face (I prefer overos), color around the eyes (not eye liner, but color), I do at the least want eye liner, but if I'm choosing I want full color. And I like blue eyes! I actually prefer one of each, best of both worlds! I think blue eyes are 'easier' to read because they are so clear. There are some bald faces I'm not particularly in love w/, but in generally I don't mind them. And there is a blue eyed horse on dreamhorse that looks like his eyes are popping out, in his (or her, can't remember w/out going back and looking) do seem abit freaky to me.

Now the one thing I don't care for is bald/white faces w/out eye liner and brown eyes, they look to much like rodent eyes. I also don't care for partial eye liner either.

Of the horses ladybugracer posted, I love Bandit and the last horse. Don't care to much for the other two (that second one has the partial eye liner), of course I'm talking color pattern only.

As for the other horses posted (sorry don't want to go through and mention each individually), I didn't see any I dislike!

We live in Southern Cal and I don't care for bald faces from a sun-standpoint. Our paint gelding has a bald face that goes mostly over one eye, without eye liner on the front and a completely pink nose. We have to majorly sunscreen him and keep on a mask from about April to October or the poor guy burns and peels terribly. He also seems to always be a little weepy in the bald eye. Otherwise, we think he's really cute.

I love baldfaced horses. Especially if they wear it good. I also love blue eyes. With or without the eyeliner. On some occasions. Usually it just depends on the horse.

My horse has a bald face but it's extremely hard to see some times. I had to darken up a few of the pictures so that you could really see it
