I saw all of these pictures on a search I did on google for
Brindle horses, it must be a very rare coloring for horses.

I like the brown brindle ones ! ^^

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

I had no idea that such a pattern existed in horses until I heard about that horse abuse story last year (Aussie vet with a ton of starving horses she was breeding from Catch a Bird progeny).

Anywho, cool pattern. If you had one, you'd certainly be noticed

I didn't even know horses could be brindle! I like brindle dogs...Don't know if I really like it on the horse tho. It seems to break up their natural lines. Maybe its just me...I don't like those optical illusions.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Wow interesting. They are kinda cool looking I guess, but I agree with Dumas. ;)

Ride more, worry less.

I just ran across this "pattern?" doing a random search on rare colors etc. I have been reading about it and thought I would search here to see if anyone has said anything about them. I want one!!! The grulla ones are so pretty!!!

Does anyone have any other info on them? From what I've read they were thought to be associated with dun factor, but now they are proven on non-dun horses. Some sites say the trait is passed on in breeding, others say it isn't. Not a whole lot on the net about it...

I really like the bay brindle.
They're neat looking -- I wouldn't turn one away.

Brindles are thought to be the result of Chimerism, which basically means they have two different sets of DNA.
