External HG coolant leak?

is this unheard of or does it happen? ive got a customer with a coolant leak that looks to be running right out of the back of the head. ive never seen or heard of head gaskets (on 6.0's) leaking externally other than maybe oil.

its a side job so i wont be able to put it under pressure until later, just looking for some input

They can. Or it could be the hose inbetween the oil and egr cooler.
