Swirls

Does anyone base a horses temperament on the swirl(s) on their face? There is a very interesting article on it in the new issue of Horse & Rider that suggests that a horse with one hair swirl evenly in the middle of the eyes or a bit higher is more calm and easier to work with than one with more than one swirl or a swirl that is too high/low on the face. Any thoughts?

There's a thread about this in the grooming forum. Jazzy posted some interesting research links in it.

I don't believe it. My TB mare had a low swirl, but was the smartest darn horse I've ridden in a long time. My gelding had a high swirl and I swear he had lard for brains... complete opposite of the supposed "swirl-ology" that I've heard.
