    Not exactly - that's more of a broken face white.

    this is a Badger face

    Huh, I've never seen such a thing. How neat! Horses never fail to amaze me. You learn something new every day. :)

    I suppose you could make the argument that broken blazes are a partial badger face.

    Now THAT's pretty darn cool! Is that a Gypsy Vanner horse or one of those types?

    Very nifty color pattern. It's so symmetrical and perfect, lol.

    Does it go hand in hand with Splash?

    Is it related to Splash? The horses displaying badger faces appear to be Splash to me (combined with other white patterns)

    I've seen it on a Clydesdale too (sabino/splash)

    The full on badger faces seem to be tobiano + splash. The unusual ones like the filly just above I think are just an odd expression of sabino and splash.

    That "symmetrical and perfect" pattern is CLASSIC splash, which is why I love splash.
