I was at a sale once and a lady brought in a real pretty black and white paint. But the auctioneer announced that the owner was a beautician and had dyed its hair. Said it was really a solid black.

I am not sure still, that animals with this strange white spotting, are not suffering from Vitiligo. It is not common, but noted in many species including wild animals.

I wonder has anyone seen this in siblings or children and/or grandchildren of these animals. If it indeed has been seen in generations or families, then I'd pretty much think it is Vitiligo.

Vitiligo is found in horses. Seems to be pretty common in Arabs, where they sometimes call it fading Arabian syndrome. It usually hits the eyes and muzzle first from what I've seen of it and doesn't look like this mare so much

Wow atleast they admited the spots were fake. If not, that would've been some serious false advertising!

Excuse the double posting, but I thought Vitiligo just effected the skin and not so much the hair?

Vitiligo is not a nice disease in humans. It can affect hair, eyelashes, eyebrows and many organs in the body, apart from that which we see outwardly on the skin.

My first guess is that it looks to be like some sort of scarring.
