My new project mare has some funny looking (to me) markings on her back. What is it? Fungal scarring? Lacing? Uneven sun fading? I'm assuming she's a very bleached out fading black - her old home had no shade or shelter for her and she was getting very low quality feed.

Full body shot.

It just looks like an odd bleaching pattern to me. Lacing is white hair.

Bleached hair that's probably where she sweats a lot.

You can sorta see them in these two pics...

Henny's got the same thing going on, though it's bleached out more evenly now. He also sweats a lot and stands out in the Texas sun so he bleaches easily.

(The white spot in the middle of his back is actually a spot he's had since birth. )

It almost looks brindle but I'm going to go with the bleaching... I think.
