What Is A Stripe?
A "blaze" is a broad stripe down a horse's face. A stripe is just a narrower one, that may be as thin as a pencil line.
Some people might call this stripe a blaze - it falls between the two, especially as the top reaches to the top of the eyes. I'm still tossing it up myself.
A much more distinct stripe on this Quarter Horse gelding, which narrows towards the top.
Ignore the delightfully spotted butt - you're looking at the chestnut, which has an extremely thin stripe.
