Swirly Patterns on Coat

Does anyone know what causes the swirly patterns on my horse's coat? It almost looks like a "paint" with all the same color. My horse is a Percheron/TB Cross, six years old, healthy. When the weather warms up in the summer these crazy patterns come out. Then they fade away during the fall, winter and spring
Trying to post a picture. Looks like crushed velvet going in different directions.

That is pretty neat. One of mine has a cross pattern that runs along her flank as a single crooked line that shows up in summer also - it gives the appearance of a seam but is nothing as extensive as yours. I always thought that was the horse equivalent of "cow licks" that people get in their hair.

Yep, sometimes horses have hair that grows in different directions, like your guy. Like Chevaux said, it's very similar to cowlicks in people.

Yes, I think of it as "cow licks" too, but have just never seen it on another horse!

My gray Mustang has it, but not to the extent of your boy...and his is much harder to see with him being white LOL.

That is very cool and unique! Is it like this all over his body?
