Am i the only one?

That thinks carmello horses are ugly for the most part. It seems to be the rage in alot of breeds these days and I just don't see why.Most I have seen look sickly with the red pigment around the eyes and dull appearance. Is it because its a "rare" color that everyone likes it?

No, you're not the only one. I've never been a fan of perlino, cremello, or any of the pale colors.

Plus, blue eyes in horses give me the creeps, and anything that has red rimmed eyes always looks as if they're in pain or have an eye infection.

Unlike Speed Racer, I adore blue eyes in any animal. But I too find cremellos a bit creepy, although I did meet the most adorable cremello filly recently.

I'm not a huge fan either.
Everytime I see one all I can think about is sunburn.
I'm sure not all of them have that problem, but having worked with lots of traditional white horses that did and other white livestock with sunburn issues..... they make me shudder a little, and remember the blistering sunburns I got as a fair skinned kid.
(Back before parent believed in sunblock!)

Blue eyes I do find interesting though.
My horse has one blue and amber eye and one green and pale amber eye so I had better be a fan of weird eyes.

Eck, that's a good point Lockwood. I've met a few horses with bad sunburn on their noses simply from broad blazes, and I imagine it could easily happen to cremellos and the like, what with the pink skin.

Your horses' eyes sound awesome, too.

I'm not a fan either. For me it's the pink skin/red rimmed eyes. I don't mind blue eyes when there is a dark color/skin around them. I have one with a blue eye that I love but he is a very dark bay, if it were white around it I wouldn't like him nearly as much.

I'm not a huge fan of the cremello, perlino, etc... though some of them I think are prettier than others. I am a fan of the stallion Guaranteed Gold and I really like my friend TheNinja's filly Farrah.

So, for me, I think it just depends on the horse in general.

Cremellos don't sunburn like traditional white horses. The skin under the white parts of a pinto horse are unpigmented and definitely burn, but the pink skin of a cremello is still lightly pigmented and so has some natural sun protection.

I am not a big fan, either. It is hard to admith that , since they are so popular. Here's another confession that is likely to haunt me here: I am not a fan of Fresians for dressage, either. I dont' care for the neck that is so straight up that his ears are practically under your chin. I know everyone thinks they are the Cat's Pajamas, but I think they are TOO stylized. Ok, now kick me.

I think Friesians are pretty but they were bred to pull carriages, not perform much under saddle.

Besides, all that hair gives me eye twitches!
