You know, you're right. Gah. Every single thing I've read about sabino horses up until now talked about blue eye as being a characteristic. Today I Google "sabino blue eyes" and everything says it is NOT. Genetics make my head hurt.

You get used to after a while

It would be interesting to find out if Frame is really the cause of blue eyes or not. Up until now, I was under the impression the Frame and Splash are blue-eye makers.

I can't wait until they figure out how to test for Splash. I think it'd answer a lot of questions about the blue-eye mystery, if we could test Frame horses with blue eyes to see if they were also Splash as well.

I think that there is something more going on. Why don't every frame or splash have blue eyes? Something else must be involved.

It's the same with Vienna rabbits. Not every Vienna (Heterozygous for Blue Eyed White, which is Homozygous) has blue, or partial blue eyes. Some have brown eyes and Vienna markings. Others (like my breeding stock) have full blue or partial blue eyes and white markings. Sometimes the brown just overpowers the blue, the blue hides under the brown (I had one buck like this, his eyes where 'marbled') or the blue eyed gene just didn't 'click' at all, even if the horse carries it.
