Question Anyone have a picture of a horse with a swirl below it's eyes?

I'm doing a project for school and cant find a picture of a horse with a swirl way below it's eyes. Does anyone have one?

Thanks

There's one on the "Reading Swirls" thread on the Genetics forum. It's about 8 pages in. It's a perfect elongated oval, half above eye level and half below. I can't make heads or tails of it as to what it says about the horse's personality.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

That was hard to find.

Here is the only one I could see and it's not even that low:

Hope it helps

I have one of a little horse that I rode for a customer. His was pretty far below his eye level.


Let me know if you need any pictures of other unique swirls. I have several horses that have odd ones (double swirls, peaks, and the like).

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/

Thats great! Thank you. If you get a chance would you mind telling me a little bit about his personality? If not just the picture helps a lot.

Yes, if you do have any unique swirls that would be great if I could have some pictures.

Thank you!!!

Well, he was very intelligent, pretty spooky (though he got over that quickly). He was eager to please and willing, even when he was freaked out of his mind.

Let me see if I have good pix of some of my other uniquely swirled horses.

Pokey: He has more swirls on his body than I have ever seen on one horse. He's a little too smart for his own good and has zero interest in being friends with any human. He's snorty and spooky and stubborn and just an all around butt-face. If he was my horse instead of my Dad's I would have sold him years ago.


I guess he's the only one I have a good picture of. Though 3 of my 4 customer horses have odd swirls, I will try to remember to get some good pix for you tomorrow.

This is Rhedd. He was THE sweetest horse you will ever meet, well at least in my opinion. Him and I bonded very closely and I could ride him in the field with NO tack with other horses galloping around him. He never spooked and only ONCE did he ever act up with me. He was my baby. <3


Bear. He had a mean streak in him (had some anger issues), but besides that he was a COMPLETE sweet heart. My niece could lead him around (he is about 17hh). High "swirl", but still a sweetheart. Not hot at all, VERY lazy actually.

I have about 10 more horses I could share pictures of, but I don't want to kill anyones computer. ;)

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.
