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.
Oh direct shot at my horse! Lol its cool. My horse is bald faced and has a blue eye. I love it.

There is a paint at the horse show series I show in that I always see, and it has two blue eyes. It is certainly interesting looking, though not my cup of tea.

I just never liked blue eyes, and a bald faced horse makes me think of Hereford cattle.

Doesn't mean they're bad horses, just that they're not something I'd pick out to take home. Which means there's more of 'em for those of you who do like 'em!

I understand what you're saying, no hard feelings lol. I never really liked them till I got my boy. Even now hes not completly bald just 3 quarters of the way there, the poser.

I never thought I'd pick something that looked like him but lo and behold, here he is.

One of my geldings is a registered paint. He's cremello and has two blue eyes. I have to look twice at his eyes though because his skin is so pink, my heart skips a beat when I think something's wrong with his eyes LOL!

I have two breeds I said I'd NEVER own; a TB and an Appaloosa.

Never say never. God likes to make a fool of you if you do!
