bloody shoulder?

My 18 yo Arab mare has gotten more specks lately, and seems to be getting a bunch on her shoulder. Does this look like it could develop into a bloody shoulder? :)

Not a bloody shoulder just grey ticking.

Bloody shoulders don't develop. They are there from the start of the greying process. It is essentially an area that is lacking in the greying pigmentation.

Hmm, ok. Crud, I was hoping she was getting one. ;)

I am so impressed that I knew what caused a bloody shoulder I am patting myself on the back as I type.
Kind of difficult too I might add. Shalom

Agreed, not a bloody shoulder. They are there and will become apparent as soon as the horse lightens enough for the fleabites to start becoming visible (thought the bloody shoulder often shows up before the fleabites do).

Also, a bloody shoulder mark will be the same color as the horse's fleabites.

That's a cute story.

Well the ticking is chestnut, same as her flea bites. Maybe she'll develop a "fake" bloody shoulder, eh? One can dream. ;)
