Question Eyes still blue?

Rumour is almost 7 weeks old and her eyes are still blue. I was just wondering if this is normal for them to still be blue after this long?

Here she is 6 weeks:

I don't see blue eyes.

If you look at most horse eyes close enough, you can see a midnightish blue ring. I see a normal horse eye.

My 14 month old, Finn, didn't lose his baby grey/blue tinge and go brown until about 7 months old. And like Macabre mentions, he still has a blue ring, but the rest is brown. I don't think it's anything to be concerned about at all, it's not like a true blue eye/glass eye. I think some just color change faster than others.

I was just worried if they should have changed yet or not.
