The Equine Eye. Horses have the largest eyes of any land mammal, but the positioning of the eyes on the sides of the head gives them only about 65° binocular vision with the rest 285° being monocular, resulting in lower depth perception than human's. Also, although not color-blind, horses have a more limited two-color vision versus a human's three-color vision, resulting in their seeing blue and green colors well but not reds.
