    When I look into Blu's eyes I see like plateaus and desert mountains hovering over a small blue pool. It's beautiful.

    I can't notice anything wrong to be honest.
    But if you are seeing something, get the vet to take a looksie before you buy.

    Hmmm I remember reading something about this online before but I can't seem to recall it... I'll see if I can find it.

    IT'S NORMAL!:) I swear!

    Pretty much all horses have it. I'm not sure of all it's functions, but it helps to shade the eye, and it doesn't affect vision(as unlikely as that sounds).

    DON'T WORRY!

    Yes it is! It is the corpora nigra. Take a look at ANY horse in your barn, they will have the same thing! It's hard to see in your pictures, but it does looks a little bigger then some horses, but as long as it doesn't fill the pupil they are totally fine. My vet told me he got an emergency call at midnight from some hysterical woman who thought her horse had tumors in his eyes. I'm surprised he didn't kill her! There's also a fantastic article about them in a Practical Horseman a couple of months ago.

    That was my opinion as well. The corpora nigra (also known as granula iridica) are usually bigger on the top of the eye, but this looks like a normal variant. Horse's eyes can be difficult to assess due to the massive range of normals.
    I'd have a vet come and have a look to be certain, but I wouldn't be too worried.
