Ooh, I like those "apron blazes". I also love bald faces.
I'm kind of a Paint fanatic. Specifically bay-tobiano and sorrel-overo :P

The picture that was posted of an apron blaze is not what I think of as an apron blaze, though I can see how it fits the description. I was not trying to be critical and certainly wouldn't say that all horses with an apron blaze are not pretty.
I do not own a horse with an apron blaze (like I was referring to) and would hate to say it's not my favorite marking and then post a picture of someone else's beloved horse as an example.
The marking that I was referring to as an apron blaze is very narrow between the eyes and trails down the face and gets larger on the nose/muzzle. IME It just creates an optical illusion of a longer face and bigger muzzle.
I am very sorry if I have offended anyone with my post. It certainly is/was not my intention.
The pictures that were sent in response to my post are very beautiful horses. :)

Thanks for the clarification, buckskin, and I don't think you were offensive at all.

I love the bald face, especially with the blue eyes. My mare's face is not completely bald but she does have the two blue eyes and I find it beautiful, though it can be creepy sometimes

I don't mean to offend anyone but I really HATE blue and wall eyes! They just look really ugly to me what does everyone else think?

I HATE bald faces with brown and blue eyes, I think it makes the horse look like a cow...

I also LOVE blue eyes. Here are some pictures of a black mare with blue eyes I'm getting in a couple weeks : ]

i know how you feel. I don't favor them all that much. On some horses it looks ok, but most of the bald horses with blue eyes look sorta creepy. On the other hand some horses can look cute with bald faces. I don't have a fav. Marking but that's because dif. Markings look dif. On dif. Horses. Lol that's a lot of dif's.

I'm not a big fan of the bald face, but that could just be a hacky thing, they're not really seen in the ring except on a few welshies.

My favourite markings would be large stars and blazes. This is a photo of my youngest and her blaze. It's slightly off centre, just like her personality!!
