Pictures might be helpful... How big are the spots? And how long have you owned her? It may be her summer coat coming in or something, and if you haven't had her too long you may not know they're there.

Since she is a TB, they are likely bird catcher spots.

Birdcatcher spots or ticks are patterns of small white spots on a dark coat. Usually, these spots appear once a horse has reached maturity and eventually disappear. Sometimes, however, they do seem to be permanent. This is Willspynow, a 1991 mare by Well Selected out of Spy Gail, by Father Hogan. This mare's spots are bigger and more highly concentrated than most Birdcatcher spots. (Photo by Barbara Livingston)
