thanks! and yeah, i think it is a thoroughbred thing. most of the ones i've ever been around have long pasterns. and i'm working on increasing his weight and muscle. (particularly his top line.) he needs a lot of help with that. but hopefully all goes well! thanks for the critique.

I think that the white around the eye gives the horse a more 'soulful' look.

I actually know of a few other horses that have it.
we have an appy at my barn that has that eye thing..i call her crazy eyes lol. he looks good though!

thanks everyone! he's doing so well. he's so well mannered under saddle. he let me get on bareback the third day he was at the barn. and just trotted around like it was nothing. no spooks, runaways, or anything. i was so proud of him! :) the farrier comes wednesday to fix his feet and get them totally in check. i'm going to start giving him corn oil in the pm to help up his weight, and start seriously riding him and working on muscle building once the farrier comes out and gets his feet all fixed up.

Give him soy oil instead of corn oil, it has a better mix of omega 3s and omega 6s.

I've known a couple horses with the "crazy eye" too and they were really nice. One of the nicest, calmest 2 year olds I've met has it.
