I had never seen this before!

Blue's right eye is half blue and half brown! I had never seen or heard of something like this before!

After some reading it sounds pretty common in overo paints...but cool none the less!

Yep, my little overo mare has a half blue/brown eye. It's her left eye though. Lol. Just changed within the past few weeks of me having her.

That's really cool.

I feel kind of silly having never even heard of this before, considering how long I have been around horses. You learn something new every day!

It's called partial heterochromia. My son has it and so does my dog : ).

Does it affect thier eye sight as they age, or is it just a cool color twist?

My horse has it.

Blue seems to get eye boogers on that eye more than the other blue eye...not sure if it has anything to do with anything though.
