    Default The weirdest markings. Who is this horse? Anyone know (at HITS)?

    Just an ordinary brown horse...

    I remember that cool brindle stallion. Anyone know if this is one of his? I didn't have the time to ask when I took the pictures.

    I think I saw pics of the same horse and thought the white was photoshopped.

    If that's real, the markings are way cool.

    I think it might be a horse from http://www.woodridge-farm.com- I know they are at HITS and they have a horse with similar markings (so I am told) --I think it was something to do with how the horse was in the womb- somehow it caused the odd striping...I heard this from a friend that is a judge in the area- I suppose there could be more than one in the world...?

    Brindling is rarely, if ever, heritable.

    I saw the same horse in Saugerties this past year. I cannot remember the name offhand but it had nothing to do with the unusual markings. I'll check the results and see if I can find it.

    It is "Queen of Hearts" from New Jersey where her rider does the children's hunters.

    That is a cool looking horse!

    I thought for sure I'd open the link and see Caitlin Ivey's horse Eq horse Ranier - He's got an amazing brindled coat, but it's not that dramatic!

    I've seen the horse a couple of times down here at HITS Ocala; it's a really cool looking horse!

    ??? In horses??? It's certainly inheritable in dogs.

    Generally, it is not heritable in horses. Brindling in horses is due almost exclusively to chimerism. The condition cannot be passed on.

    There's another one with similar cool markings in NJ. Don't quote me on this, but Melissa Michaelson had this one and I *think* its name was "Jungle Prince"...

    If it's not the Queen of Hearts horse, it looks A LOT like it. I see that one around quite a bit in NJ (also in Saugerties this past year). It could fall on it's face and I'd still want to own it just so I could look at it's prettifulness every day. I'm pretty certain that's the horse.

    Here is some more info on brindle in horses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brindle

    In horses, brindle coloring is extremely rare and may be either caused by or somehow linked to chimerism, resulting in an animal with two sets of DNA, with the brindle pattern being an expression of two different sets of equine coat color genes in one horse.

    It is Queen of Hearts. I talked to her owner/rider at HITS and asked her what her name was thinking it would be some kind of play on the horse's color.

    Robert Beck in NJ had a horse in his barn that looked just like this one. Could even be the same one.
