Depends on the markings, I love the ones like your guy, but the ones with more white aren't as appealing to me. Welcome to the forum!

^^^ I agree. I am not usually a fan of a almost all white face but really depends on the markings.

That is the splash white gene that is causing the deafness. It can do that sometimes but not all splash white horses end up deaf. The OP's white face looks frame caused instead of splash

As for the sun burning a fly mask helps a lot. Though Pepper always takes his off lol I always find them ripped in the field lol. Pepper burns around his eyes a little and around his nostrils where you see a lot of pink that is the most vulnerable. 30 SPF sunblock that is sweat proof and water proof will keep him in good shape. I was gone over the weekend and he didn't get any sunblock and in the pic you can see the scabing above his nostril where he burned.

Pretty horse! I like his white, particularly the dark around the eyes.

When I bred my mare to the paint I chose I was hoping for some white face, got a tiny barely visiblestar. I was dissapointed at first, but now I am glad. Pipers dad, the paint in question, had to be put down due to complications after years of trying to keep the sunburn at bay.

Luckily your horse has quite a bit color around his eyes but I would look out for the upper lid of his left eye. A flymask will definitely help!

Very pretty gelding, btw!

Foal
I personally was not a fan of bald faced horses until I was blessed with a miracle sept. 18 2010. I got a dun rescue mare that was in foal and she gave me the most beautiful colt named Blue Moon. He is almost all white with just color on his withers and neck with one spot on his left side, he has a bald face but medicine cap with crystal blue eyes and as soon as I saw him I was in love and now have another bald faced black/white twh/qh boy with 3 white socks and a bald face that was a total surprise named Winters Frost. So now I am totally in love with bald faced babies! Just something makes them unique....also I have a cremello/perlino (not 100% sure what her true color will be) filly that is lippizzaner/qh with crystal blue eyes named Kee-va . Neither Kee-va or Blue Moon have ever had any issues with moon blindness or sun burns..thank god...very lucky! Such a beautiful horse you have!

I like them. I bought my mare thinking her bald face was gorgeous, then she gave me a bald faced colt, so now I have one more reason to love them. The color, or lack there of, hits their faces almost the exact same way.

I never liked them at all until I happened to buy a 10mo old Paint...love them now! I just make sure I put sunblock on him, and have a flymask...I don't have any issues with that though!
