Ok so what the heck is this?!

This is NOT my horse. I saw it advertised on FB, and for educational purposes I wanted to post it's picture here, because I and probably a few others, want to know what the heck you call this!!

Apperently, this horse was at an auction somewhere back east and didn't sell so he's at a feed lot looking for a home!! I really wish that I didn't live all the way on the west coast, as I would snatch this boy up in a heartbeat, not just because of his color, but look at that poor sad face!!

Anyways, he went through the auction as a "pintaloosa" but anyone that knows anything about horses defiantly knows that this is NOT a pintaloosa.

My first guess was bird catcher or chubari (sp?) spots. But the strange facial marking threw me off, perhaps he's sort of a "mutation"?

Could it be vitiligo? I know it is more typical around the muzzle and eyes... but could it be an extreme case?

Looks a little like Tetrarch spots, but those are supposed to be mainly a gray thing. Also reminds me a tad of manchado, but again, I don't think that's what is going on. I suppose, without further information, I'd have to go with some de novo somatic mutation....

I also thought manchado aswell, but still looks so different from all the manchadopictures I've seen.

By the way, this horse just sold (Thank goodess, it was going to get on the truck to Canada tonight if it had no takers) and believe it or not she's coming to my neighboring state, Idaho!

That is so interesting! He looks as though he went into the washer with bleach! I'm glad to hear he got a home, I'd love to see pictures when he gets fattened up.

A saddlebred named simply stunning, who also exhibits fungal scarring. http://i872.photobucket.com/albums/a...lystriking.jpg

The rescue horse there, if you look at a head on photo of her you can see the difference in color between her star and the fungal scarring white

Hard to say, but it looks like pink skin under the white.

Blackcriscket- how do you tell the difference between fungal scaring and birdcatcher spots? What makes you say fungal scaring?

I know this is off subject, but is there something wrong/discomfort with this horses mouth? Its seems to be in discomfort without the reins being pulled. It stands stiff and sore, I'm glad he got a new home. Hopefully it is a good one.
