Heaps of horses get white hairs. It's really nothing to worry about.
If they are in unusual places - they could be places where old injuries were. From what I understand, this is because the damaged hair follicles do not produce pigment. It would be awesome if someone could verify this for me, because I'm really not quite sure.
There are also saddle marks shown on the back or the withers - from unfitted saddles being worn for a long period, or simple long-term saddle wear, unfitting or dirty saddle blankets. This is just another suggestion, although this most likely is not the case.
Or, they could just be bird-catcher spots.
