Allie has been reading again. She reads this stuff on the inter web and then comes to tell me all about it. I try to tell her that if it doesn't have to do with hay or carrots, I am not really interested. But she just babbles on and on. . .
Her latest read had been on whorls. A whorl is the bit of hair on my face that grows out in a circular fashion. Every horse has their own whorl pattern and placement, some even have more than one whorl! According to the recent things Allie has been reading, the placement of the whorl may indicate horse temperament. Allie said she doesn't put much stock into that, but she is interested none the less. Here is what she has been reading:
Here is me:
|I am a sexxy beast!|
I am sporting my 80s hair do. I just need to rock some neon and have a Poison song as my theme and I am good to go!
Anyway, see my whorl? Higher whorls or more than one whorl may mean a more nervous animal and lower whorls generally mean a calmer animal. To test whorl placement you draw a line from the top of the eyes like so:
|You wanted to see my poof forelock again|
My whorl is pretty even with my eyes, starting like a centimeter below the line. According to the articles I should be a "more even tempered animal with just enough spirit" but my whorl is placed a teeny tiny bit lower, so I may appear lazy.
Allie says that this is mostly true. When Allie is next to me on the ground, I am fine. It is when she rides or drives that I get a bit more high strung. Allie really needs to prove herself to me, then I will relax and let her have more control.
So, horses, donkeys, and mules of the inter web. . .I am interested to hear what your whorl patterns say about you. Do these articles have any truth to them? Where is your whorl and how does it reflect on your temperament?
