    I never noticed this about my mare...

    I just wonder where the dark spots in her coat come from? She is BLACK, black, but I've noticed after bathing her and letting her air out, she has dark spots, about the size of a baseball, all over her. Just wondered if it was something outrageous I needed to know, or if it was just part of her normal black coat.

    Sire is bay dun, EE, dam is sorrel.

    Pics? Maybe she has a "sooty" gene (not sure if that's what it's called) causing dapples?

    The only thing I could think of would be smoky black, but she definitely is not smoky.

    Sounds like dapples to me. Unless it's ink spots...?

    Can't be smokey black, one parent has to have the cream gene.

    That's my reasoning. And neither of hers have it... Just something strange I noticed that I hadn't ever seen before.

    Could be dapples. If she was sorrel I would say bendor spots.

    Also she can not be EE if her dam is a sorrel. She would be Ee.

    I think she was saying hte sire is EE.

    Black horses can have dapples, too :) They're just harder to see.

    I used to have a Morgan gelding who was black, black, black. When he stood in the sun the right way, he had dapples all over.
