Sunday Stills ~ Eye(s)


 My boy Voodoo, 21 years old now, is a true black however when he was around 15 (I think?) this patch showed up around his eye. It changes size but it's always there now. I've been told its something that is fairly common in Arabian horses. Voodoo is grade but we're pretty sure he's an Arab x Quarter horse - if he doesn't have Arabian blood he sure shows a lot of similarities (physically and mentally) to them lol

Its hard to get it to show up clearly in pictures but his eye isn't a solid chocolate brown, its kind of marbled. A very wise old horseman called it marbled, and he said that those horses can be very tough to get along with but when you do its quite the relationship. That sure sounds like Voodoo too <3

  1. Wow 21 already.... a year older than Beamer.
    I hadn't heard that saying before, now I'm gonna be checking eyes on horses of a certain temperament!

  2. Nice eye photo of your beautiful boy! Interesting about the marbling, no doubt the wise old horseman knew a thing or ten.
