Bonnie has one blue and one mixed eye. I didn't think it was that common.

So blue eyes are officially only in paints right? My pally is a solid paint mare supposedly, but I've only ever seen her mother and and her mother is a solid pally qh.

OHHH!!! And has anyone ever heard of the old wives tale that horses with blue eyes are crazy?

My colt is full QH. He would be considered a crop out.

SAsamone, blue eyes are caused by either frame or splash. Since these occur in numerous breeds, no, they don't always occur in Paints. However, I am becoming accustomed to the 'Americanism' of it, and assume you mean the colour not the breed lol. In that case, then also no. Splash and frame can both 'hide' in normal white markings, and are in many, many breeds that don't have pinto.

I don't know much about color genetics, but I could have sworn I've seen it in a Sabino or two as well.

The problem is that most horses have a few of the white pattern genes going on, and there is only a test for two and a half of them - provided sabino 2 does exist, there is no test for that. I have not seen any evidence to link blue eyes to sabino with no frame or splash also being present.

Wow, really? I've always been told, and grew up knewing from everyone that if a horse has white markings (other than the normal stockings/face markings) than it is a paint. Doesn't matter if it's the breed or not, white means paint reguardless of how you look at it. So how does that work, because, again, totally different than how I grew up??

Basically, Paint is a term referring to a breed of horse. Yes, the majority of the breed are pintos, but they breed true to type and so are a real breed. Pinto refers to the colour, no matter what breed it appears on.

It is a regional thing - in the US you would have constant exposure to the term 'paint' being used to describe coloured horses, so it is only natural that the term be used for all coloured horses that one sees. The same happened to the spotted gene - we always refer to it as appaloosa quite happily.

I guess it stands out to me being from Australia. Here, Paints are a fairly exotic breed lol. And anything coloured is called a 'pinto whatever' like a 'pinto shetland' etc.
