We are using the term blue-eyed in
a conventional sense. As a matter of
fact that color is the rarest by far
of all. Some assert, Indeed, that it

haven't seen it. Perhaps the rarity of
blue is not to be regretted, unless by
enthusiasts who set beauty above
charity and humainity. For all ani.

and it is equally true of horses and
