    Loosie, when our early cowboys were dealing with wild colts, they practised phrenology. Not that they knew the name of the science, but as something lots of experience taught them. It did them them a pretty fair idea of how the colt would break out.

    ^As did early 'psychologists' on people. As did/do people attribute a lot of stuff to 'the stars'. If it was accurate, surely it would still be a common practice. And in many instances, 'pigeonholing' & going off preconceived ideas becomes a self fulfilling prophesy. Once had a farrier that looked at my yellow horse & grumbled 'never trust a pally or a buckskin' ...& I suspect he made that true with the ones he dealt with... never seen my horse behave like he did that day!

    That's my feeling about it, but I will look at those links asrial - always worth considering different ideas.

    Be nice to see a side view of her profile. I'd be interested to see how straight it is...or other interesting quirks.

    From a long time horseman's perspective (mine) her physical face build tells me her eyes are too forward and too close together. That will make her less able to have the good peripheral vision behind her like a lot of horses. Therefore I would not be surprised if she is a teeny bit spookier than some horses and looking around a lot. (she has to turn her head more to see everything)

    As well her eyes themselves are a bit small making her look not as friendly as some horses. In other words not the most outgoing type, but likely still a decent working horse if you don't crowd her too much mentally.

    Also how many cowlicks does she have on her forehead? Old time horsemen say if there are two and they are horizontal to each other them the horses are more difficult to get along with. I don't hold that to be necessarily true but as a farrier I never look at that on a new client until AFTER I have shod them....
