Can a horse have blue eyes?
Blue irises are usually seen in horses with light-colored coats such as cremellos. Having a blue iris, however,does not make a horse any more likely to have intraocular problems, including equine recurrent uveitis. Coat color, on the other hand, can be associated with eye problems.
What colors can Arabian horses be?
Colors. The Arabian Horse Association registers purebred horses with the coat colors bay, gray, chestnut, black, and roan. Bay, gray and chestnut are the most common; black is less common.
Can Arabian horses be buckskin?
The buckskin, similar to the palomino, is a lighter phase of the bay but not a true buckskin. The Arabian does not carry the dilution gene and suffers no loss of skin pigment with either of these phases. The light-tailed bay with a tan-colored tail is a unique occurrence sometimes seen in young horses.
Are Arabian horses white?
Sabino in Arabian horses is one of the best-known Arabian coat color patterns, but difficult to define because there is considerable variation in markings. It is characterized by bold facial markings and high white leg markings, usually with irregular edges, and often extending above the knees and hocks.
