Unsure on the pony, but I do believe the others are. They've been brought up various times to have been that at other forums, this mare in the OP was on topic and those pics were brought out again.

Her star being whiter than her spots leads a lot of people to believe it is fungal scarring, as the white marks left by it aren't usually as crisp of a white (at least from what I've seen). Man..I wish I still had pictures of two geldings we had at a camp I worked at...both had some sort of fungus we were treating them for and both got these big, oblong, splotchy marks by the end of summer like these horses...lost all those pics in a house fire.

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!
FYI, ac4h are scam artists, if the horse hadn't sold it would have miraculously gotten held over. I followed the horses week after week for about a year until I noticed the trend, the final straw was when I took in a severely lame mare for a woman in Florida who purchased her. The recuse started there was no signs of founder but she had to be put to sleep the day after I got her because the founder was so severe there was practically no coffin bone left(severe bone degeneration from chronic founder) and there was actually a whole in the sole where the bone was starting to come through. Yet they sold this mare for $325 stating she just needed a few trims to be sound. You can click on faith under my horses to see her x-rays.

ETA: It's really kinda neat about the fungal scaring, I never knew that could happen in such circular patterns

I think the lighting can play a part in the spots looking more roany or more white...here is another pic of Simply Striking...spots look whiter and more crisp here http://i872.photobucket.com/albums/a...ikingspots.jpg

Honestly, I don't even know anything about the rescue or whatever they are, thanks for the info.

I've had to deal with ringworm on two occasions, thin fine scabs on part of the horse's face and the thick round circular scabs on the rump. Both times horses were treated with an iodine product and no scarring or even any indication the horses had had it.

That is very interesting. Just so you know, I wasn't challenging you. I was curious as to how you could tell the difference so easily, as I am not familiar with either fungal scars or bird catcher spots.

I love learning new things, especially when it involves equine!!

The way they are over the body screams it to me. Not all horses scar from fungal infections. If you've seen enough neglect cases though--it has this similar patterning while the fungus is present
