National Quarter Horse Registry ~ Since 1956


BRINDLE  horses wear a form of camouflage, probably a throw back to the stripes and shading used by wild horses long ago and zebras today to blend in with their background. This factor is not at this time recognized by the N.Q.H.R. as a separate color, but instead as a reorganizing pattern.
