There's no reason it shouldn't. That portion just didn't "get the memo" that it was supposed to lighten. But it is a nice way to show color genetics in a "layering" sense and more than shows his black base.

Honestly, I don't know if it's a bloodmark or not. My gray has one on his face and it's certainly got the splotchy edges that make it pretty obviously a bloodmark, but with part of hers being bordered on her white marking, I think that likely explains the one smooth edge.

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/

This little guy?
