Blue Eyed Paint

Blue eyes in horses (and other mammals) are caused by a reduction of pigment (melanin) in the eye. This causes light to reflect differently from the eye making the eye appear blue. Blue eyes and partial blue eyes in horses are most often associated with a white pattern. They most often occur when the white pattern passes near the eye removing pigment from all or part of the eye.
