Post Blue Eyes?

Is it only Paints that have blue eyes or can any breed have them? The only horses I've seen with blue eyes are Paints so I was wondering if it was a breed thing. Thanks! =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Someone try to get CloudsMystique to partake in this thread. She has a horse that's not a paint, nor does the horse have any pinto markings, other than blue eyes

I believe so. My friend has a solid black minature pony with a white stripe and he has 2 blue eyes. He has no painted lineage. I think he is gorgeous when he doesn't have all his fuzz :)

Any breed can have blue eyes...it's just not common (in general).

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Yeah my Quarter Pony has blue eyes, she's a cremello.

Thanks! I was just wondering because we were having a convo at the barn and this question just came up and no one really knew.

Blue eyes are also a trait of the splash white pattern-- splash is found in many breeds besides paints/pintos-- in its minimal form it makes face/leg markings that wouldn't be considered paint/pinto, but in its more highly expressed for it can cause belly/body white that would be considered paint/pinto.

Here is a registered Appaloosa mare who has minimal Splash (IMO) and has 2 3/4 blue eyes. She produced a couple of foals which also had blue eyes, but she never produced foals with pinto markings.
