Blue Eyed Quarter Horses

I have had a lot of people mistaken my Purebred quarter horse for a paint, because of her blue eye. I am starting this thread, to let anyone show off their Blue eyed quarter horses. Not paints, or solid paints, or any other breed, but quarter horses with blue eyes or a blue eye. To show people that quarter horses can have blue eyes to.

I will start.

She is very pretty! People are mistaken if they think the overo (frame) gene does not exist in quarter horses. This is why more quarter horse breeders need to be educated about OLWS.

I used to lease a horse with one blue eye, asymmetrical blaze/bald face, "normal" leg white, and a belly spot. I was told he was a QH, but since then I've wondered if he's actually a Paint, or if he's registered at all- he might have enough white to have been disallowed from the AQHA registry at the time (though I would still consider a horse with 2 registered QH parents to be QH, I know others disagree) I think the belly spot would be large enough to qualify him for normal papers if is registered Paint... I'll have to ask at the barn tomorrow!

What a cute horse! His marking may be technically enough, but unless he has one APHA parent, he wouldn't be allowed.

Yeah, I don't remember when it was that APHA stopped accepting QH cropouts. He's ~18 years old now, so I think they still accepted them when he was foaled but am not entirely sure.

There is a new rule this year in the APHA...so at least some crop outs are eligible...

Basically you can register QHxQH and QHxTB and TBxTB *IF* there is more visible white than if you have Paint parent(s).

Rule RG-070-1 was passed adding a provision for horses with both sire and dam registered with AQHA, Jockey Club or the combination of these two registries. Effective January 1, 2013 (applications must be postmarked after January 1, 2013), horses eligible for registration with the American Quarter Horse Association or the Jockey Club will be eligible for registration with APHA if they meet the specific registration requirements which includes new color specifications. The qualifying area must be a minimum of four inches of solid white hair visible from a direct side view. Excessive white on the head or lower legs will not qualify the horse, nor will white areas located on the lower portion of the horse’s abdomen.

Wow, this is a whole new ballgame for paint horses! Thanks for sharing!
Kind of makes me sad that I can't show my SPB (who is obviously splash but doesnt have a belly spot) in regular paint classes but pretty much a full QH or TB can, no problem. But that is a rant for another thread.

I believe AQHA also passed a rule last year that says a foal born with paint colouring can now be registered as long as both parents are quarter horses, and I think both parents have to be solid coloured too

Blue eyes are caused by Splash, aren't they?
