Question striped down the barrel?

Two of my mares (full sisters) have stripes going down their barrel, they are sorrel horses and the stripes are sorrel too but darker or somethin, its hard to explain I will try and get some pics tomorrow. They are just like really thin lines. Any one have any ideas?

This is pretty much exactly what they look like.

I didnt actaully red anything on the site I just saw the pics and put it on here.

Would still like to see pics of the actual horses you are asking about. With unusual markings, it is much better to look at each horse on an individual case basis.

In that link, both look like they are being caused by a change in the texture of the horse's coat.

I don't mean a change like a new type of hair has grown in this shed or something like that. I mean that the texture changes from the "stripe" to the non-striped area.

I think what Chiilaa is saying is that they are something like cowlicks, where one portion of the hair grows in a different direction than the rest.

ETA: as for cause. I am willing to bet it's a genetic throwback to the camouflage of prehistoric type horses.

I think the color in question is brindle...but a photo could really help!
