I was reading a genectic thread on here(we so need a genetic place), and I got to thinking-
Why do most horses have a blazes, stripe,snip, and most commenly a star on their forheads, even if they don't have any pinto breeding and they and their ancestors a bay, brown, or black? Where does it come from? Because I've seen very few horses that don't have one of those on their head. I mean, I've seen them, heck, our neighbor has one like that. Also, what with the striped hooves if they don't have appy or paint in them? Because I've also seen that. I know it has to do with genetics somehow, but i'm not sure. I prefer to think of it just being "random",lol, even though I know its affected by genes. So, please explain! :)
