Body Features

Horses can have unique body features consistent with a breed.  We can spot these as features of a Thoroughbred, a Norwegian Fjord, a Morgan or a miniature horse from a distance

Horses can also have body features unique to an individual.  These include face markings (star, stripe, snip), hair whorls and defects, both congenital (sunken face, divots) and acquired (scars).  I include these on identification papers.

These topics include some of the unique body features I have encountered in my practice.
