Hancocks Go Maggie. Please help me figure out what color she is?

Okay, so this is my 2006 Quarter Horse mare, Hancocks Go Maggie. She is obviously a dappled Palomino. But there are a lot of dark brown spots on her, and I have no idea what they are or what they're called. I've had her since she was a yearling, and she didn't have them then, but Maggie has never had much for bites, and none of these are scars or sores. So does anybody know what this coloring would be?

Bend-Or Spots :) Bend-Or spots - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ETA: Go back 12 Generations on her pedigree through Dam's side via Go Man Go (or just find Top Deck's sire Equestrian), and there you have Bend-Or himself. :) (I did this on allbreedpedigree.com)

Wow, she's a beauty!

Those dark patches are called grease spots or Bend Or spots. Basically, from what I understand, they are just concentrated spots of sooty. Generally they are most often seen on red based horses like chestnuts and palominos.

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/

Wow. Thanks! That sounds exactly like what she has. Wish they told how a horse got them.

Thanks! And okay, that makes sense. Is it genetic or something?

See my modified post above ^


Basically your mare is a direct descendent of Bend Or.

Bend Or spots don't appear to have a genetic link. They do seem more frequent on red based horses, and on horses with other expression of sooty. To make it more unpredictable, they can appear after the horse has matured, and they can disappear too.

It has nothing to do with being related to Bend Or RSS.

Yes, it is genetic and the spots can come and go.

Genetic but has nothing to do with being related? How does that work... ?

ETA: I just found it interesting that she is related. Not saying that is the cause itself.

Okay, so the cause of the Bend Or Spots don't actually originate from him? And yes, I'll check, I added Maggie on allbreedspedigree.com.
