    Im guessing if that's the case the spots will go away once she sheds out again...?
    Hard to say. First, we aren't sure that's what they are from, but NDAppy sees the same thing I do - most likely regrowth hair (which in a palomino will normally be white or at least lighter than the base summer coat) from scarring, and rain rot would be a likely candidate for the scarring considering the nature and location of the spots...don't know for sure of course - just speculation at this point...

    Lol, that was my first thought...that she's been spending too much time with my App gelding.

    Haha...Appy doesn't rub off. But being around him she could be jealous and is grunting out those spots in hopes of upgrading her breed...
