Sclera

examples of sclera

Photo H - This is an excellent example of true Appaloosa sclera because the white encircles the eye and is adjacent to the iris, much like a human eye. This photo also shows a good example of Appaloosa mottled skin.

Photo I - This horse's eye is turned back, showing the white of the eye that most non-Appaloosas exhibit. A close examination also show a brown sclera adjacent to the iris.

Photo J - This horse has a brown sclera adjacent to the iris. It would not be considered an Appaloosa characteristic.
