I have become very interested in brindle horses since it appears they are becoming more seen and heard of in many different breeds. I have found many different websites that claim to have and breed brindle horses. One of the traits they claim to be related to the "brindle gene" is that the hair comes in different textures, it comes in during the winter time and is called a "seasonal brindle". To me, it looks like just choppy winter hair that's been exposed to the elements. Can someone explain why this is considered a brindle trait? Other than seeing choppy hair I don't see a variation in the colors.
I know one of the effects of rain scald can make a temporary scar that looks like lacing or brindle, could people be confusing the two? Or is there such thing as a seasonal brindle?
