Apparently, blue eyes in horses is often related to the horse having the Dilution color modifying gene? Dilution-type genes, dun and creme, Champagne and also the paint pattern characteristics? I know Genes are passed from the parents to the child; the Dilution type gene is a dominant "Dominant meaning that if it is present, it will manifest fully.
Dilution about the eyes means that it doesn't change the color of the horse, but lightens
the skin color...?making the color "diluted". Dilution also affects eye color? That is what I read and I am very confused by this. I have a dark bay and white Tobiano mare with blue eyes. Sire was black and white homozegous tobiano, brown eyes, Dam was a solid bay. 2nd generation all blacks and bays, 3rd just add 1 sorrel, 4th ad 3 sorrels out of 11 blacks and bays. Where did the eyes come from and will she pass them on? Does she have a dilute gene?



There FOUR known dilution genes in horses. They are Creme (that makes Palomino, Buckskin, etc.); Dun; Champaine and Silver Dapple.

Dena blue eyes are very common with splash. I am quessing that the bl/wh stallion had splash that he passed on to your mare. Does the stallion or your mare have any face white at all? Pictures of both would really help.
