Horse has yellow eyes!

Not sure where to put this but...


I'm just curious is anyone else has come across a horse with yellow eyes? I've seen plenty of horses with blue eyes and obviously, brown ones but yellow ones?

I'm just wondering because one of the mares at the stud I ride at has yellow eyes and I found it very strange...

Yes, there is a TWH breeder in VA that has a mare with yellow eyes. Its beautiful and haunting.

We have a palomino mare at our barn with them-I think they are cool-frankly like them better than blue!

Sometimes when a horse's eyes turn yellow, it means they have uveitis.

I think she is talking about gold eyes that pallys get sometimes. They are very pretty but kinda weird at the same time.

Its a dun mare, she's always had them so I doubt she has uveitis (plus, hoping that since this stud is at a Veterinary University that they would have picked up on that if its the case) but I'll get pictures when I go to the barn today and post them!

I think the actual color is called Topaz.
