One of my customer horses has the exact same thing, one dark eye and one with a visible sclera and she's a registered QH. It is absolutely nothing to worry about. I think I heard somewhere that it is tied to the gene that gives them their facial and leg markings. Don't quote me on that though because I'm not sure, it's just something I heard and it makes sense.

What smrobs says DOES make sense as there is a theory that any white on any horse is caused by a pinto gene of some form or another... some of them of course have a lot higher expression than others and we all know how much pinto patterns can vary in expression... from none at all to LOUD and almost totally white, yet still genetically pinto/paint.

I do believe that certain pinto genes DO cause white sclera as apparently it is common in paint horses.

OP I know that you said his eye has been like this for awhile. Have you had the vet looks at it? It looks to be inflamed and weepy. (not talking about the sclera, but the pink in the front corner of the eye).
