We pulled out my first saddle and cleaned her up. I was 12 when my dad bought me this saddle. Proof if you take care of things they can last a lifetime. 12 years old to 60 years old. 🤠❤️🐴🙌

The whorls on a horses body can give us great insight to the inner working of the horse. When the fetus is developing in the womb the skin and the brain develop at the same time, before the eighteenth week of gestation. Because they develop at the same time changes in the fetus create corresponding changes in the skin and hair growth. These give us a window, an outside mark, that shows us what is happening on the inside.
Whorls on the forehead show us a horses temperament. Whorls on the body show us how their muscles and conformation affect their movement.
🐴 High Whorl~High whorled horses are extroverts, are very invested in the external world, everything going on around them. They want to go, to be moving all the time. Emotional and sensitive they will be as brave as they can be and eager to please with a sensitive supportive rider or a nervous wreck with a harsh rider who doesn't give the support they need.
🐴 Center Whorl~A single center whorl doesn't tell us much except that we don't see any extremes of temperament based on the whorl. In order to get a good idea of the temperament we would need to look at the whole head to get clues from the rest of the features
🐴 Low Whorl~A low whorl shows an introvert. A horse who is content within themselves. They are thinking, processing the information around them. Sometimes people make the mistake of underestimating their intelligence because they don’t respond immediately, which is a major mistake. Introverts can be extremely intelligent, they just don’t run around telling everyone about it like an extrovert does. They have a quiet, droll sense of humor.
🐴 High Side by Side Double Whorls~High double side by side whorls show a horse who is a left brain extrovert, with some right brain extrovert mixed in. They are sensitive, extremely quick learners. Bold, calm, curious, and confident, they can concentrate intently on a job but will get bored with repetition. You have to give them a reason to be interested. They can be a super power in the right hands, or they can completely run over a person.
🐴 Stacked Double Whorls~Stacked double whorls show a horse with a double personality, quiet and excitable, spooky but trustworthy. They are sensitive and need a rider who understands them. In the right hands they can make great horses whose quirks keep life interesting, in the wrong hands they can be neurotic.
🐎 Body whorls~When there is a single whorl on the body, without a matching whorl on the other side, the horse will prefer to bend in that direction, around the whorl.
🐎 Throatlatch Whorls~Large whorls in the throatlatch area will cause a horse to want to carry their head in front of vertical. They wont want to tuck their nose down tightly and will often carry extra muscle on the base of their neck.
🐎 Only looking at the whorls on a horses forehead limits the wealth of information we can gather. What whorls does you horse have? On the forehead and all across their body? 🐎
