SEELING. A horse is said to seel when upon his eyebrows there grow white hairs, mixed with those of his usual colour, about the breadth of a farthing, which is a sure mark of old age. A horse never seels till he is fourteen years old, and always before he is fifteen, or sixteen at furthest; the light, sorrel, and black, seel sooner than others. See Horse —Age of the.
