Looking at whorls is a time-honored method of judging a horse’s temperament.
Long-held as superstition, there is science to back it up. Hair and brain are formed from the same fetal cell layer. Because they form at the same time it makes sense that as a fetus develops the hair growing over the brain and body, can shows signs of what is going on underneath.
The placement of a whorl on the horse’s face will tell us a lot about their personality.
