does any body know what the hair whorls on a horses face & body mean ? a girl who used to board at my barn had a book about it but she moved a long time ago & my mare has some interesting whorls, so i was wondering if any of you knowledgeable people know what whorls mean.

THANKS

Oh really? Haha!

Kind of like when everyone told me that buying Hotrod was like playing Russian Roulette!
I've hear stories like:

-Bald faced horses are bad news
-Strawberry roans are loco
-Blue eyed horses are looney tunes

Well, I got all 3 in one! Hehe..
I havn't seen anything wrong yet.
He's just a hyper little feller.
He's only being the baby he is, and he isn't a gelding, haha..

I wonder what those whorls mean!!!!
I'll see if I can look it up.

im interested to hear what they mean too. i heard a horse with a wide forhead means they are smart and willing... well, for my mare the smart part was true... the willing? not so much.
lol im not supersticious at all, but its fun to findout what stuff like that means!!!
