That's why I suggestsd fungal or environmental. There is a pattern called machado spots or manchano spots - LOL, I can't for the life of me remeber the spelling. It's basically exactly like the "Appaloosa" looking mare first pictured in the link but is almost exclusively associated with horses in Argentina. It pops up in all breeds I believe but is completely localized. There is some discussion as to whether there's something in the water causing it (literally).

I've just started learning about genetics with horses, so I may be wrong, but has any one suggested that this horse is greying out? It can start at any time on any part of the body. Usually, the chesnut horse would have darker skin, but I can't tell from the pictures. Here's a link with the "Grey" description:

Ash, a horse cannot grey out without the direct presence of a grey parent. Grey does not hide like some other genes.

Alright, so a grey mare or stallion will always produce a grey foal? Or could a grey mare and bay stallion have a foal that isn't grey?

A foal from a grey rent has a 50/50 chance of greying.

We have no idea who the sire no idea what color he is.

Hm...this is very strange indeed. Cute baby though! I wonder if she could be greying out. Although the pattern does look like a fungal issue. I wish we knew about the sire..... If we knew for certian that her sire was a grey, would we still be thinking this was a fungus? But on the other hand.. it is strange for a foal to grey out in that way. What are some other signs of grey in a foal? It doesn't look like she has the "goggles" but there aren't any clear face/eye pictures. SO MANY QUESTIONS!!
