I have an arabian at our rescue like that!! When we got her she was a typical chestnut greying out, with a little dappling and some red on her neck, looked like a cluster of flea-bit spots. Over the years she got whiter, but her red spot got BIGGER.
Here she is:


This was the first day she met my mare, acting like an Arabian xD



Yes she is fat xD

Wow! That mare's face marking is sharp! I'd take her & the split face cat for a barn mascot :)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thanks I think she did, but she's not one of my projects, we got her actually before we were a rescue, spent tons on training but she's just an air-head. The wonderful trainer we hired, I love, but she trained her a number of skills that we just aren't skilled enough to achieve. And without them, she is fairly dangerous to ride. She's just explosive. I'll see if I can check her registered name and who she's related too, but I don't think blood spots are hereditary? I'm not sure? We found a magazine with a stallion who looked JUST like her, except his spot was on the other side (assuming the photo wasn't flipped). I wonder if it is hereditary if they're related. I'll look into it :)

Sounds like a challenge LOL Hopefully some headway gets made with her. Does she buck?
I don't believe it is hereditary, but I have found that most Afabians that exhibit it are either Straight Eygptian or high percentage. Just curious if she fell into that pattern.

I really have no idea, I'll ask to see her paperwork when I go back tuesday. Nah, she doesn't buck, she spooks over EVERYTHING. Silly things like a bucket that was on the elft of the driveway that's now on the right of the driveway is now a horrible monster. We've taught her to put her head down when she's frightened to shift her out of flight mode. But now when she's scared she'll just dance in place with her nose on the ground just about ready to explode. She's gone about 10 years at our rescue and is getting up there in age now, she'll probably just live it out with us. Most of our horses are end-of-the-line type horses, who really just need a place to live out their life and pass with love. When we got her in the beginning we put all sorts of money and hopes into her, but then we got full, lost money, and her unpredictability really was her own downfall. She could have gone to a quality handler, but none showed up. So now she exists and keeps our old ponies company. She unfortunately kicked her regular handler seriously on 3 occasions, all out of fear (plastic bags or being behind her without proper warning) but each time ending disastrously, which has truly limited her potential even further. It's sad because she could have been so great if she were trained as a foal, or just been less spooky in general.
