Anyone ever seen half a sock?

Has anyone ever seen half a sock? This little girl seems to have one on her left hind leg. Is this very unusual?

It does look pretty cool, but I've seen it a few times.

I havee two mares that are somewhat like this. One has two legs with the marking and one only has one leg with that marking.

Not uncommon.

It is more fun to have horses with white patterns, either obvious or subtle, have the white fighting on the legs. My mare's dam is frame/splash/sabino and they fight all over her legs. One foot is black with black up to the knee, then white cuts across, etc.

I've had two with 1/2 socks. But neither came up as high as the one you linked to.

Here is my young gelding and his back-right leg has a partial sock with ermine spots.

My very first horse, an Arabian gelding, also had a 1/2 sock.

Haha, all I got to say is markings can be funny. On facebook theres a photo of a paint where on the side of his body the white spells out 'HORSE' lol

Kelo has half a stocking. His left front is white in the back and red in the front. The rest of his feet have white stockings.
