Yesterday I hosed Lacey off after our ride because it was 60* out and she still has nearly her full winter coat so she was crazy sweaty.
After I did that, I happened to glance at her left shoulder and noticed that her skin on that shoulder, and in her girth area, is mottled pinkish brown unlike the solid black skin on the rest of her body (except for her socks).
In thinking about it, I realized that in that area she gets brown/chestnut "fleabites" while the fleabites on the rest of her body are black. Even her bloody shoulder marking is black...
Anyway, does anybody know what might cause this? I've just never noticed it before so I'm curious.
Sorry about the shadows in these pictures, either her head was the way way of the sun or a tree was. Silly girl!
Before you ask, yes, I made sure it wasn't dirt.
