My friend messaged me that they found this info on brindles... The brindle horse usually has dark stripes on a lighter background, but there are cases of light stripes on a dark background. At one point, it was thought to be part of the dun factor, but it found to be untrue. "Many people confuse the Brindle pattern with Dun Factor markings (stripe down the back, barring on the legs, and occasional regular-spaced striping down the ribs). At one time, it was thought Brindle was a just a variation of Dun Factor. Indeed, there have been many examples of horses that were probably carrying both Dun Factor and Brindle."
