There's a video in horse.com that goes into details and the book I read, Getting in TTouch ( yes two t's) goes further into it. The basics outline single swirls above the eyes, single swirls below the eyes, long single swirls, double swirls and triple swirls. If your horse has more than one swirl then it means different things depending on where they are positioned. For instance, romeo has two swirls, one above the other which supposedly means that he has a split personality. I believe that one! The premise behind it is that the fur on the forehead is formed in utero and in connection with the brain. Some of it seems like hocus pocus but I'd be interested to see how many people agree with it. You would have to really know your horse to confirm accuracy, not just ridden the horse once or twice.
