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...
