Don't think they have a test for the splash gene available at this point in time.

MM you have them mixed up - there is a test for frame, aka LWO. There isn't a test currently for Splash.

There have been horses that have tested negative for frame that have blue eyes. However, until a test is available for splash, there is no way to determine for sure if the frame horses with blue eyes aren't carrying splash too. At this stage, blue eyes are thought to be caused by both.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Oh my god, seriously don't use a computer when you're exhausted. Yes, that's what I meant. *shakes head*

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

Not sure if anyone answered this yet, but I believe the term is partial heterochromia. I could be mistaken, but Im fairly sure I'm not.

My friend [drafts4ever] Has her Gypsy mare Legacy that exhibits this as well.

Her one eye is full blue and her other is partial blue, partial brown. Granted the partial is a vertical/diagonal split not a horizontal one.

My friend has a buckskin with a half blue/brown eye. We call it a "Crazy Eye." It's actually really pretty.

My first horse had a two colored eye (I think I called it party colored). And if I remember right it was up and down. Her other eye was all blue.

My friend's sorrel paint stallion has a half blue eye too.. it's really neat to look at. There's also a gray walking horse with a half blue eye. We've got two at our barn! Haha, they must not be TOO rare. I also had a black/white paint filly with two blue eyes, but one of them had a brown smidge so it wasn't completely blue.

Dude has a double coloured eye.(:
He's a Flaxen Chestnut with Sabino from his looks, but he's never been tested.
Here's a pic I took of him last year at Hookstown:
