And like bubba also said, health isn't always the cause. Abby was covered in dapples when I foud out she had ulcers.

Bah! Stupid ipod deleted what I typed. Again:
Th most common colors I have seen dappled are bay, black, brown and gray (though that is just a graying stage). This isn't saying much though because those are the only colors at my barn other than Abby and the majority are show horses.

I have seen palominos, obviously buckskin, double dilutes and a couple grullos. Never bay or red duns though. I just asked a friend if her red dun has dappled at all. He wasn't this summer, but neither was Abby because she only does in fall and winter like I mentioned.

HITS, conveniently enough, my equine class did digestion today and mentioned the NRC. Nutrient Requirements of Horses: Sixth Revised Edition
