It's very cute. I would call it a "star and stripe". It's probably caused by sabino and frame interacting - sabino making it go the whole length of the face and stay even, frame trying to make it top heavy and spread above the eyes.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Well, it looks a bit (and I feel do immature saying this) like a swimmy sperm.
He's a doll!!

Funny!

Funny! My husband loves him for that reason. I picked him out and then saw the front of his head. We started laughing, but he is really cute! I was kinda in shock when I saw his markings. I have never seen this mark before on a horse...so strange! I love the look of him

It also looks like a balloon on a string!

Either way, he is cute.

Defiantly a star, stripe, snip combo on his face. I have to agree with Dressage10135, it does look like a balloon!
