I have a black horse with one blue eye. I was wondering if any of you knew what caused this genetic as her mother, father, or even any of her closer ancestors had blue eyes. I don't know about any of the older ancestors...
It's a common misconception that white "paint" genes can't show up in other non "colored" horse breeds. She probably has frame, splash or both. Your probably not planning to breed her but if you do I'd have her tested for frame and make sure she isn't bred to a frame carrying stud. Two inherited frame genes in a foal = lethal white foal which will always die.
Whats a lethal white foal? I was thinking on breeding her in a few years, maybe. If I do breed her, chances are I will not have her tested for genes. But I won't be breeding her for quite a few years yet, so I am not worried.
Overo lethal white sydrome. It would be great that you educate yourself on this as most like your mare carries frame. Here's a wiki link to get you started. Anyone have the link to Angel the lethal white foal it was on someone's blog or website I believe it's one of our members sad story. That would be something good for breezy to read.
