My POA mare is varnish/blanket and she has one of those spots on her chin too.

That horse looks ALL Saddlebred, to me, and going by the other markings I would think the chin spot is from Sabino, of some form or another.

As far as his weight... Maybe, if he's still struggling, have a vet give you something for ulcers.... One of my ASB mares is prone to them, and she did the same thing... Food in front of her (and her eating it) but never any weight gain. We did a Zantac treatment for diagnosis... Then worked on eliminating stresses from her life. She's been looking great all year (I've only had her two years.... The first was spent trying to figure her out as the weight would come up a bit, then dive...but otherwise didn't seem like an ulcer horse)

You boy looks lovely... They are such a cool breed. I own 4 now :)

Thanks. I don't work with him anymore, wish I still did. Despite his less than pleasant disposition I fell in love with him and the breed in general. He was so willing to learn! Once he figured something out he was great. His owner took him back home after I was done working with him. Very long story. Too long to get into here. So hopefully his pasture life is stress free, if it was ulcers. The vet did a lot of blood work on him. She was puzzled.
