Interesting face marking?
 
I was digging through old pics the other day and came across my first horse, Thunder. I don't remember ever noticing it before but have you ever seen a horse with a white spot off to the side like this? Below and to the side of his star?? Is this just part of his coloring or would it be from a past injury? He was OLD, I don't know how old, and I have no idea what breed he was.

Cant tell but it looks like an injury or a bad rub.

I was so little then i don't even remember him having it. Sorry the pics aren't the best, I had to scan them in so they aren't very clear, they're close to 20 yrs old.

Could be either, I'm leaning more toward it being part of his facial markings...

hmm...I don't know...I've seen some wacky face markings so maybe it was just normal like that?

You think it could just be a marking? I've never seen one marked like that before that's why I was curious about it. Would like to see a pic of another marked like that if anyone knows of one....

See, it happens, I've seen it a few times, especially with with color in their lines

Yes but that is where a blaze would normally go where as on Thunder it is off in the side, that's why it struck me as od.

I agree, and where it is located by his eye, I would bet from an old injury. My poor old man had white hair lining his face where he used to wear a halter before we got him. It was SO tight on him! Those people were mean.
