Need pics before I can guess.

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.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
