Great question! Man, was I wrong in what I thought marbled eyes were. They are so beautiful! Love that last pic! Now that I think of that, we had a kid last year w/ marbling in his eyes, my mom kept thinking they were blue but that must have been marbling. . . . interesting. Great pics!
They can vary quite a bit, some tend to blend more brown(or gold) to blue, and others have more separated color, one of my doelings this year originally looked to have blue eyes, but now she has chunks of brown around the outsides. My other marble eyed kid this year had what looked like pale blue at first, but are now a nice blended color, blue in the center darkening to brown as you go out.
any of the mini's of the standard breeds
mini nubian, mini mancha, etc
are "legal" to have blue eyes because of the cross with the ND's
my final goal is to have a small herd of spotted blue-eyed mini nubians with awesome udders
I wouldn't mind having blue-eyes in some of my Mini-Manchas. Right now I only have two blue-eyed bucks nad one will be leaving this fall since he's sold. Just staying to stud for a while. I haven't completely made up my mind yet who to breed them to. I can't wait to see what they have and they're not even bred! Haha
