Upside down dorsal stripe?

I was looking through my photo's and I saw this. It's Zoey's belly. To me it looks like a dorsal stripe, but it's n her belly. Anyone know what it actually is?

This is a ventral stripe. It's another primitive marking, similar to dorsal stripes. It can be caused by dun, but in her case it is caused by grey.

All of my greys have (or HAD in Rosie's case, since she is all white now) that.

Grey often causes random faux-primitive markings. It's not uncommon as part of the greying process. It IS pretty cool though.

I have a friend who has a true grey dun and SHE is darker on the face, has strong shoulder barring, leg barring, and a distinct dorsal stripe. It will all grey out eventually, sadly, but for a while at least she will be quite openly dun.
