Cloudkisser, thanks! She's actually coming a yearling now, and only just getting out of a real fugly stage. I need to get some current pictures of her.

Natisha, ROTF I never noticed that! Reese (the cat) always sleeps in his stall, too, I wonder if she feels some spotty kinship.

Isabelle has a weird black spot on her forehead, and I love it! I think it makes her look cool and unique!

The man I bought her from said he hated her spot!

I have always wondered, do you think it is just a natural marking, or maybe she skinned herself there one time and the hair grew back dark (the way it happens with roans?). I am guessing it's a natural marking, but I don't know for sure.

PS. Indyhorse, I LOVE Claymore!

Normal marking for sure. Not an old wound though. It is more then likely just a small "bloody shoulder" type marking.

Thanks, that's kind of what I assumed, because it is perfectly smooth and filled in with hair, but I wasn't sure.

I went through my pictures of her and realized that was the best picture of her spot that I had, because normally her forelock drapes over it.

So I think she is a base coat black, because her spot is black. She doesn't have any red hair on her. I told my folks that she is my black horse and they didn't understand! But she is my black horse, she just went gray!

Indy, Frejya's(i think I spelled that right.. lol ) spot looks like a seahorse to me!
I don't have anyone with anything to funky really. Just a paint with all white legs and 1 dark, and an oddly colored horse and sparta who has a cute shaped snip.

My mare lost a patch of hair on her belly a few months ago and it grew back black! She now has a black patch =P

You can kinda see it here over the shadow head XD

We've got a few oddball markings.

Artie's little star, kinda cute

Latte has some kind of tornado-like blaze hehe

Excel's star and random snip

Molly's crooked and deformed stripe....

Sundance had a stripe under his chin, but I don't have any pics of it. He had this wildly curly black forelock though, the rest of his mane was chestnut and white haha.

Most of my horses are fairly plain - a couple odd blazes and a few oddly shaped splotches on Freyja are really all I've got lol.

But Claymore's markings are kooky :)



Fiona's blaze is off-centered and makes her head look crooked lol:



And I've always thought the odd shaped spot on Freyja's shoulder SHOULD look like something, I just can't make it out lol

my name is freya :)
