    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!

    you have that issue as well? Both my bald boys have that problem, but none of the others...ugh drives me nuts I even tried fly masks! Yeah that lasted all of maybe a day...one had it hanging around his neck which scared me to death he could've caught it on something and the other one was their pull play toy apparently and was ripped in half...lol..so I used hypo-allergenic baby wipes and they will stand and let me clean their eyes thank god...lol

    Just a note to everyone. Runny or goopy eyes can be indicative of inflammation or vitamin/mineral deficiency. It can also be a reaction to UV. Inflammation can be from ERU symptoms, allergies etc. if you have a horse with pink skin around his eyes, even if it has no history of ERU, you really should have a vet qualified in eye issues examine the eyes.

    Vet checked their eyes I was concerned my old morgan mare always did and it was because of allergies plus she had copd... vet said its not infection and when their eyes are cleaned up it is just pure dirt and there is no reddness around the eyes or anything...he thinks its possibly from being inside the barn and the hay getting dust in them or in the summer when the farmers are plowing the fields they get really bad..we have a huge field around the whole barn so he said its more than likely that never had any issues with any of mine until I brought them to the place they are at now plus thereis a dirt road running down the length of the barn and side so its well traveled...especially in summer..but I might want to have blue checked out for sure because of his blue eyes...frost will burry his nose and head in the square bales to get the stuff inside and now blue has started to do that...monkey see monkey do..i am scared they are going to get a scratch or damage their eyes it is why we are putting round bales out next week for them to use until spring comes...see if that clears it up some..pray it does...

    I love the bald faces and now that I own a Paint horse I love them even more! My paint is a tobiano but has a large blaze and a pink nose.
