Do you think whorls can tell you about a horse’s temperament?
Jana Lorraine I’ve had 30 horses in the past 20 years and have found no connection to whorls and personality types. I find the more reliable source of personality traits is bloodlines. Cheryl Millwood I have two horses with different swirls on their faces and necks and both of these horses demonstrate behaviors completely unlike my other horses, who just have the usual swirl between their eyes. My horses with multiple swirls are very smart, but they tend to spook at almost anything. Alexandria Pallas I have a horse with multiple whorls and she’s my husband’s solid trail horse. He’s a total beginner and she’s great with him. No spook. I have another horse with a whorl and a feather in the middle of her forehead—which is supposed to be very positive— and she’s a handful.
