Question Have you ever seen marks like this?

Ok, so this summer my gelding Sunny very randomly started getting white marks around his eyes. It started with just one and a few more have popped up since then. He has never had anything like this before and they aren't scars. He is a sorrel 12 y/o gelding, breed unknown. Thanks for any help!

Are you sure they aren't scars? I would lean towards something like sticking his head through a fence or something like that, probably to get more food into him. The way they all seem to be aligned in the same direction makes me wonder.

They look like scars to me too.

Any chance you have had a sleazy hood on him lately? A mare I board with now has scars just like that from her hood slipping one night and cutting into her skin.

I didn't think about that good point.

He has worn sleazys overnight during the show season but the ones I use are well fitting and have never rubbed him or slid around.

They also have very large eye holes and don't come that close to his eyes.

I wouldn't put it past him to try something like that but I see him almost everyday and I would have noticed scrapes.

I've seen ill-fitted cribbing collars cause this..
But I'd say they're just random white spots or that he lost some hair for whatever reason and it grew back white.
