If it's a scar, it will be permanent.

re: white spots on spine/back--my haflinger started getting these, and more random white hairs throughout. I always chalked it up to sabino roaning. The spots change size, and to a small point, location--so they could be bitty little birdcatchers on her as well..LOL.

I have a friend who had an older gelding get a random, palm sized roany patch next to his was there for a couple of years, and then disappeared. I think he was in his late teens when it happened.

No, that's probably from some sort of trauma. Even a scratch can cause the hair in certain areas to grow back white.

It's permanent. Any white marks from injuries are permanent.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I don't recall any trauma to her back/spine area, but then again who knows what horses get into while we're not around!
