    could she be...brindling?

    I got her last like sep/oct when she had already started her thick winter coat so I didn't notice it before,but now she is all shedded out and she has the crazy textured lines running down both sides of her neck! I looked at some pics of brindle horses and she looks (to me) like she might be brindling a little...what do you think? In some pics I smoothed them down and in other pics I fluffed the hair against the grain. They are there all the time..not an allergy or anything like that. They are kind of raised up in a weird way,though....anyways..here are the pics...let me know what ya' think! Thanks! p.s...i have only noticed them on both sides of her neck/shoulders....and a little bit on the underneath/side of her belly....

    Also...is there a test for brindle?

    In the first pic in the second batch of photos there is a sweat mark,because I took the pics right after I finished riding her :) I finally remembered to bring my camera for pics,but I forgot to until I was grooming her later...sorry :)

    Other than the small sweat marks,no she is not wet at all.

    I don't think so, but I'm no expert

    To me, it looks like long-ish hair that has been wet then dried (or in the process of drying) not completely straight - this happens a lot on the neck, especially after work or a bath.
    Just my opinion, no, I don't think she is changing color. I have no idea about brindle though, I would assume it isn't something a horse "grows into" if you will.

    I would think it is just how her hair lays.

    Wildey has a horrible coat that lays all over the place, and makes him look almost mottled!

    Hmm..i don't know if she had it before,though as I bought her when her coat was already pretty long...i have only had her maybe 7-8 months or something....and she just finished shedding.

    The lines are there ALL the time...no matter what. She just happened to be a little sweaty in some of these pictures,but they are there when she is completely dry all the time,too. And they are often kind of raised up.

    I haven't seen anything like it in any of the other 20 odd horses I have owned,but maybe it is common....

    Does anyones horse coat do this? Could you post pics?

    I am just so curious about it...thanks!

    I agree. Looks like her hair just lays like that. It can happen when they press up against something in a pattern like that.
