I 'spotted' this gelding at a small farm in Illinois. I thought the heart-shaped spot on his rump was so cute! Later I found that his name is 'Cupid'. How adorable!

I can't say I've ever seen another dappled gray horse with a blue eye! This horse's right eye is a light crystal blue. His left eye is a typical dark brown.

I am not sure if he was born with a blue eye or if it was caused by an injury of some sort, but it certainly is possible.

The horse on the left is a Belgian filly whose name is "Candle In The Wind" for the obvious candle-shaped blaze. The horse to the right has a star that looks like a cent sign and a uniquely colored muzzle.
