Exclamation Is this true!?!

I am very interested in a horse I saw online and am considering going out to see her and test her out. I showed her to my friend to get her opinion and she said no cause it had crazy eyes. I asked her what she meant and she said that all horses that have white fur around their eyes are crazy. I don't think I believe her since the ad says she is dead broke and is kid safe. Also since I have a completely white horse my self. Although I don't know If this theory counts for white horses. I need help here! I was really interested in this horse and plan on going to see her either way, but I need some reassurance whether it even is worth it.

It's an old wives tale. Do not disregard this horse because of this.

Hmmm…...well think about it for a minute……horses that grey out, Lipizzaners, Andalusians, Paints, Pintos, QH with big wide blazes, Gypsies, Welsh, TBs, MFT, Walkers, minis, Clydesdales, Shires, Percherons, etc…..
All these breeds are known to have white faces, or big blazes, or grey coloring. Or white fur around the eyes, if you will.
None of these are known for being “crazy” breeds.
Yep, just an old wives tale.

Judge the horse on the horse, not the fur.

I think your friend was talking about the white sclera of the eye. From what I read it has something to do with the sabino gene and it is definitely not something you should nix a horse over without looking at it first. That is as silly as not looking at one because of breed, or color, or markings, or the swirls in its head.

Completely ridiculous. I've heard that one before but it is in no way true. I've met more "crazy" horses with normal eyes. It's no different than saying all blondes are dumb
