Never noticed that before....hey, apropos of nothing....any chance these "chimeric" markings are the same as "birthmarks" on people?
Are they chimeric?

I don't think they are chimeric. I think that more than likely there's been some sort of misfire in the hair colour distribution coding. While we may discover that chimerism is not as uncommon as once thought (as in impossible ), I still think a viable chimera is going to be more of an oddity than not.

FWIW I don't think that foal is chimeric. I think that's a somatic mutation, which should be ALOT more common than chimerism.
