Whoa Chiilaa that's rad! I always thought that the blue in a horses eye has to be with a white blaze or something to that effect. I've never see it in a solid colored horse.

My pony has some weird blue in his eye as well. It's not something i'd ever really thought about since he's a Paint mix.

This is the reason so many APHA horses are full Quarter Horses. Sabino, splash, and frame popped up randomly and loudly and the AQHA wanted nothing to do with it.

And if you want weird, this is Reminic in Spots. He's a QH.

I think it depends on who you are talking to and how "old time" they are.
Old cowboys seem to use the term "wall eye". Like a white wall tire.
China eye and blue eye seem to be used more now . I have even heard the term "split eye" for half and half.

I've heard wall eye before, but not China eye or glass eye.

Here's a new one for you- "garzo" (which is also my horse's name) is Mexican slang for blue eyed. It might be understood in other Latin American countries, too, but apparently not used in Spain.

Frame is not just in paints it's in other non "colored" breeds. And it may or may not show up on their coat.

Actually, OP, may we see his pedigree?

Some AQHA lines carry specific genes. Sonny Dee Bar was a chestnut splash for sure. My mare's dam is linebred Skipper W and those are some loud colored horses.

Not sure who OP is, but since I started the thread:
Paddys Cutters Glo Filly Quarter Horse is the pedigree of the filly with the partial blue eyes, lots of Peppy and Doc Bar but no Sonny or Skipper. But if you find one in her pedigree that is known for colored offsping I would love to hear about!

Bah. I wish allbreed had pictures of all the horses. I am not an AQHA member so I can't get into their database of horses either. Judging from Chics Texas Twister's get on facebook, a few of them had facial markings that looked like they could be caused by frame. However, there were no pictures of their dams either.

Did you breed the filly? Or did you buy her from a breeder? If you bought her from a breeder, you could email them and ask if they know the OLWS status of their stallion and mare. If you bred her from one of your mares, you could still email and ask the status of the stud.
