Studies have been done at Universities that offer training for animal vets who wish to specialize in horses. Originally, it was generally accepted that horses could only see in black and white, but that consensus was based on the fact that a horse’s eye structure is not identical to human eye structure. The studies proved that horses can see colors, though not necessarily the same way humans see color, and not necessarily in the range of colors we humans can see. If one stops to think about it, horses are prey animals in the animal world, so only seeing black & white could be a death sentence, if they can’t distinguish between the color of grass and trees and the color of a predator hiding in that grass or trees.
