Question coloured horse contacts?

do horses have coloured eye contacts for them too? My friend just told me this today and i'm not sure if it is true.

I never heard of them. I couldn't imagine wanting to put contacts in my horse's eyes, they'd hated me for sure. Plus, I wouldn't want my horses to experience what dust and contacts feel like. I love my horse's eyes just the way they are!

That's an interesting idea but I personally wouldn't do it.

They do have contact lenses for horses, but not colored ones that I know of! They help protect an iniured eye.

I can't imagine a horse would be very patient with someone trying to jab something inti their eye....just a thought
