If I could find one that was an amazing eventer, would never hurt his/her self, and was free. I'd deffanitly get one

He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

The brindle coat pattern is occassionally caused by a rare genetic occurence called chimerism. Dunbar's Gold, pictured at left, is an example of this odd phenomonon. In a nutshell, a chimeric horse develops when two non-identical twins fuse into one embryo in utero. Dunbar's Gold, therefore, has two sets of DNA, resulting in his brindled coat.
That is the horse that you posted a pic of. Here are some more that I found. The bay in the 4th and 5th pic was a hunter jumper with some success. He is a Brazilian warmblood. I think that brindles are beautiful. They are just so unique.

Very striking, but I have always been drawn to unusual color patterns.

As far as I knew they're not really sure of the genetics of Brindle actually. It seems to be slightly inheritable from what I've heard. The Brazilian Warmblood that you showed is a stallion and apparently one of his was born with some brindle patterning but it appears to be fading (although we all know how foals coats can be a bit misleading at times) but heres what it looked like when he was born:

Also this website:
Brindle Horses - a rare equine coat color
Has hereditaryily (is that a word?) produced brindles. As seen with this chart-thing:

So it appears to me to be a gene based as well as chimeric as like Dunbar's Gold they do seem to pop out of no where.
