    Did he have a blanket on last winter? Looks like a rubbed spot to me and the hair grew in a different color

    I think she would have noticed the rub spot if that's what it was.

    Maybe, maybe not. Alot of people do not notice rub spots and wonder what they are when the hair is lighter. Just my thoughts on it.

    KDW, interesting, had to look that one up. I don't think it's vitiligo, though, as mentioned the hair is very clearly GOLD, not white. The skin underneath is still dark.

    Churumbeque - nope, no rubbing, and he wasn't blanketed last winter at all. He's pastured 27/7, for 3/4 of the year, and stalled at night only in the winter. As mentioned, he has had no injuries, rubs, or anything to this area, though he has gotten a fair few bites elsewhere. I see these horses every day, many times a day. They live at home, they are not boarded. See the picture of him just coming out of his winter coat this spring in my OP, that was taken in like, March. Clearly no rub, and no gold spot then. Feed hasn't changed, routine hasn't changed, the only thing that has changed recently is the type of fly spray I am using, but the gold spot appeared before that switch was made.

    Hmmmm I didn't notice any rubbing on my horse, but honestly that would be my best guess. Interesting anyway we may never know.

    I saw this thread the other day, but yesterday I noticed that my mare had been standing under a tree and a bird had poopied on her back. Today there is a big bleached out spot where the poo had been yesterday. I'm not saying that huge golden spot is from a bird (that woulda been a HUGE bird!) but it goes to show that it could of been something random and crazy like that!

    Heartprint...rotf!! You know, the first year I moved here, Claymore had a bird-friend. A little black bird with a brown head (cowbird, I think?) That darn thing would perch on his withers, standing up or laying down, day or night, for the whole of that first summer. Maybe Stiffler has picked up a bird friend I haven't noticed yet!
