Horses with blue eyes! I just LOVE blue eyes! I dont know what it is its just very pretty IMO!

Also does one of the horses parents have to have blue eyes for the foal to have blue eyes?

Thanks!

Gage,

Blue eyes can show up even when both parents do not have them.

Here is my champagne stallion Prince with his blue eyes that did not turn amber because he also carries the splash overo gene.

We love horses with blue eyes also - and we have several horses who have blue eyes, whose sire or dam did not have blue eyes

No Gage, neither parent has to have blue eyes to throw a blue eyed foal. It can skip generations. CockRobin has blue eyes & he sired Nickelodeon, who only had a star, snip & white coronet & brown eyes. Nickelodeon has gone on to sire many blue eyed foals from brown eyed mares.

Here are a few of mine....

Kickapoo's A MayZing Moon



Kickapoo's Devine Miss M



Moonie has two crystal blue eyes & Lacy has one blue/one brown.

Double Dilutes- Perlino and Cremello, always have blue eyes. In Pinto, H/Z for Tobiano would not have blue eyes as Tobiano does not cause blue eyes, same for Sabino- the confusion happens when a horse H/Z for Tobiano carries another gene - Splash or Frame, that causes blue eyes. Only Splash can be H/Z of the two blue eyed causers- as Frame is lethal in H/Z form. I would think it would be a given that Splash in H/Z would have blue eyes- I am not sure that it always has them though- there could be exceptions, there usually are, as soon as a rule is made

Here's our junion stallion - Dawgpatch Appy Go Lucky - we call him Spot, first just after a clip & then after it's grown in. Hard to believe it's the same horse! He's a near leopard w/blue eyes.
