Equine Advice: Splashed White Pintos

DSC02104

Gypsy, the Equine Encyclopedia, has something to say about splashed white pintos.  Like all shetlands, she is always watching, learning and listening.

“Splashed White” is a term for paint or pinto horses with white legs and a white underside and neck.  When describing splashed white horses, some say that they have the appearance of being dipped in white paint from the bottom up.  This pattern can be paired with almost any color.

Most splashed white horses have blue eyes and some are deaf.  This color pattern is rare in the United States.
