Yes. Search brindle Arabian and the threads should come up.

Technically my horse is brindle... if you see the terrible photos I posted above. The ABEA classifies her as a "seasonal brindle". She is only brindle in late summer and fall when she is sun bleached enough for the pattern to be visible. Two summers ago her coat looked like a brindle great dane. However, when she's not heavily sun bleached she just looks black.

Is the second horse posed a black/white pinto with the silver dapple gene? I have always loved dapple gray horses and was really sad when I found out that it's only a stage horses go through on their way to being white gray. Seems like a black with strong silver dapple gene coloring is almost as good and doesn't fade away :)

He is indeed a silver black and tobiano. Silver black can dapple up beautifully, but it is very seasonal. The difference is that you get the dapples back almost every year

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.

Lovely markings on the first horse in first post. Are those markings possibly bird catcher spots? Very interesting whatever it is!

There is the most beautiful horse that was used in our local 4-H two years ago - his name is The Gold Ghost and he has snowflakes all over his body. They were talking about maybe rejoining this year, hoping they do so I can snap a picture or two of him.

This is what my black mare looks like when she sun bleaches:

These pics are awful quality. The first was taken in intense direct sunlight so it's a bit washed out and the second was taken in a dark stall with my cell phone. The pattern is much more obvious with the naked eye. I'd get more, but when my horse isn't bleached she just looks like a normal black. I'll have to wait until later in the summer to try again. ><
Thats a black horse? Good god. lol Body pics?
