- - Blue Eyes? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-breeds/blue-eyes-52271/)
Is it only Paints that have blue eyes or can any breed have them? The only horses I've seen with blue eyes are Paints so I was wondering if it was a breed thing. Thanks! =)
Someone try to get CloudsMystique to partake in this thread. She has a horse that's not a paint, nor does the horse have any pinto markings, other than blue eyes
^ so any breed can have them?
Any breed can have blue eyes...it's just not common (in general).
Cloudsmystique's mare is, if im correct, a FoxTrotter with no paint lineage.
Yeah my Quarter Pony has blue eyes, she's a cremello.
Actually........ any breed that can have a cremello can have blue eyes.
Thanks! I was just wondering because we were having a convo at the barn and this question just came up and no one really knew.
Blue eyes are also a trait of the splash white pattern-- splash is found in many breeds besides paints/pintos-- in its minimal form it makes face/leg markings that wouldn't be considered paint/pinto, but in its more highly expressed for it can cause belly/body white that would be considered paint/pinto.
Here is a registered Appaloosa mare who has minimal Splash (IMO) and has 2 3/4 blue eyes. She produced a couple of foals which also had blue eyes, but she never produced foals with pinto markings.
