Blue eyed horses creep me out, although they certainly have their fans. I also find bald faces to be less than attractive.
Part of it goes back to my early years in the Arabian show world. Blue eyes and bald faces were considered conformation faults, and you never saw a horse with either of those in the show ring.
You also never saw a purebred with body spots, because those were also considered conformation faults. Nowadays, sabino markings aren't considered detrimental to a horse.
I haven't shown in many years, but have attended Regional and National Arabian shows as a volunteer, so have seen a lot of changes.
