I think it has something to do with the Appy in her. My POA gelding has a very similar spot on his side. It gets more white in the winter and gold in the summer. It looks just like a roan spot to me. Both his parents were roan although he isnt, hes 2.5 years right now. POAs have appy in their backround, I bet your girl has the same thing my Chex does, its roaning. A few pics

i have had a bunch of horses with those markings. youll generally find them by the back hip or flank or from the chest up. ive heard several stories, one its from an injury and lose of the hair and two that when they were a colt they didnt grow hair there as soon as the rest of the body so the sun was always on the spot. same with the injury. its basically like a birth mark. some have it some dont

it is a natural birth mark... on light colors it is gnerally a brown spot not dark... but you dont see it on lighter colored horse because of the birth mark is not so dark in the first place... sometimes it is dark or sometimes it just looks like a blimish in the hair
