Question Light blue Coloring in Horses Eye

Hey. Lately I have noticed when my horse looks back, the corner of her eye has what looks to be a light, blue or white in color. I am extremly concerned.

Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? It looks like this..

After looking at different horse eyes it seems common, but better safe than sorry.

Is this normal too?

^^The way (ignore my lack of eye vocab) the colored part around the pupil looks bubbled and like it goes into the pupil.

If not, what is it?

I couldn't see your pictures either but I have a feeling the second thing you're talking about is your horse corpora nigra. It's the brown bubbly looking thing in your horse's eye by their pupils. They have something to do with shielding your horse's eyes from excessive light and completely normal!

Yup normal. It's more noticeable in some horses.
