So me your markings!

I was browsing the forum, and noticed a lot of horses with really awesome markings. My favorites are the ones that make an image - especially the ones on their faces, but I suppose I'm biased.

So share your horses and tell us what you think their markings look like!

I'll start ya off with mine:

Ruby / Rubaiyate

I've always thought her markings look kind of like a candle and flame, with a lot of wax 'melting' down her nose.

And then she had her first foal, Bandit

Who's star looks like a crescent moon.
(You use candles at night, so I thought it was fitting. )

And then there was Dante

Who, I swear it looks like *something*, I just can't decide exactly what. Maybe a small candle flame?
You're welcome to take a stab at it though!

I just realized the typo in the title of this thread, and now it's going to bother me. >.>

It kind of looks like there's a dog on his side opposite the seahorse -- the head is on his flank, and then it has a brown saddle spot, and it's tail sticking up right in the middle of his stomach!

He (She?) is a cutie. :3

Oh yeah! Kind of like a little Scottish terrier or something! That's awesome! She is a girl. This is the fun part of owning paints :)

When I see Sequoya from this side,I always think it looks like she's wearing high waisted pants, or a turtleneck sweater..

Henny has what looks like a piranha on his right side, and a boot with stars on his left side. He also has an arrow on his butt!

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
