*Why The Long Face? – Are You Feeling Blue? *

Blue Eyed Horse Eye

I had never seen a horse with blue eyes, this young fellow lives in Dunedin and he had the most beautiful blue eyes. I think he is a Pinto, I am not that clued up on horse breeds…
A pinto horse has a coat color that consists of large patches of white and any other color. The distinction between “pinto” and “solid” can be tenuous, as so-called “solid” horses frequently have areas of white hair. Various cultures throughout history appear to have selectively bred for pinto patterns. Many breeds of horse carry pinto patterns. Pinto coloring, known simply as “coloured” in nations using British English, is most popular in the United States. While pinto colored horses are not a “breed,” several competing color breed registries have formed to encourage the breeding of pinto-colored horses. Pinto patterns are visually and genetically distinct from the leopard complex spotting patterns characteristic of horses such as the Appaloosa.
