    Exactly, the notches in the blaze are the same as well. And the blaze "glows" on the older horse, meaning it still has a lighter border around most of the blaze. I'm 100% for it being the same horse.

    But I also ask the same questions as barrel racer above.

    Most definitely the same horse! IME forehead markings can change significantly from foal to adult. This is my mom’s mare, Willow, and as you can see only a small part of her star actually has pink skin under the white hair, though her star looked solid and much larger as a foal (not the mention the drastic color change that’s commonly seen in smokey browns!) The OP horse has the same “mapping” around his forehead markings as Willow does now.

    All of the markings line up. The blaze is simply narrower. Not really that uncommon.

    This one belongs to a member here. Forgot who though. Same horse.

    Found some other good examples as well! The last one especially changes a lot like the OP horse.

    Yeah Hefner was born with a small star but now only has a handful of white hairs where it was. I told my SO that it shrunk in the wash when he noticed that it "disappeared" and he thought I was serious. LMAO

    The pic on Sioux's papers, you can see a star/blob but hers has faded... same shaped blob just much lighter

    I got him about two years ago and have been searching for his baby pictures since then. I went on his previous owners Facebook and found a photo of him when she first got him. On the photo, someone commented that she had pictures of him as a baby. So I found the pictures through her Facebook. But I wasn’t sure if that was actually Sirius or just a horse that looks remarkably like him.
