Could possibly be, but without actually seeing what is going on there is really no real way to say.

OP, did you try to body clip this horse?? The "shedding" looks funny over the flank and there are chunks of hair along the leg & belly. Hard to see but I think there are blade marks on the ribcage in the last photo.

Clipping can make the hair reflect light differently, but it looks like this horse just has some "ticking" which is just a few random white hairs. Not roaning.

Yes we did clip her. Her coat was so long and thick it came out horrible looking. But she was soooo hot we had to do it. It took us two hours or more and we didnt even get to her legs it was crazy. It didnt help that she absolutly hated getting it done

Clipping is probably why you're seeing the white hairs now. I've noticed in my paints that their white hair grow longer than the dark hairs during the winter, then the white ticking hairs seem to mostly shed with the winter coat.

Some do show a little more ticking as they age though.

it is not unusual for them to get scatted white hairs or even small patches that look roan.Most likely sabino gene at work. I had a foal born that had alot of white hairs in her coat,not just in flanks or small spot,but throughout her body she almost looked roanish but wasn't coming from a sorrel & liver chestnut. My one mare now has a couple of roan like areas.She is weird when she sheds as she looks like she is greying or roaning out When she is done shedding no she just her usual bay & white

I would also guess that it was the sabino gene at work. She may end up with a few white hairs, and they might become slightly more plentiful as she ages, but she'll never be or look roan.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

What about the possibility of bird spots?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

iride - they would be actual spots. The ticking in this case is too spread out.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
