Question Coat Stains?

My horse is a sorrel overo paint gelding and he has a large patch of white covering his sides and belly. He always has some yellow tinted hair there.

I hose him off regularly, brush him every morning and night, and his stall and run are always clean. I have no idea what's causing this. The stable vet took a look at them and confrmed there was no medical reason for the spots either, but he's only just developed them recently and they are very distinct.

I've always been ale to keep him really white before, and now he is yellow.

Has anyone ever experienced this?

Pictures would sure help but I can't help but wonder if he has gotten into the habit of laying where he pees. That would sure account for the yellow hair.

I have a white horse too and he's always a bit yellow unless I sponge him down before grooming. Rub shampoo inbto his coat with a sponge and then let him dry

Woa nice username! I also have a sorrel over gelding:) hmm, its probably because he lays in poop or pee, but I had a horse that had the same thing-they were like permanent yellow spots! But when I show my horse I use blueing shampoo, it works great (brands like quicksilver, shoo fly, cowboy magic) You can just find them at your local tack store:)

I generally use "White N' Bright" or "Royal Blue Shampoo" on him. It works really well. My mom has a white/light grey (She changes in winter and summer) arabian mare and she uses it too and it brings out her natural white.

Thanks for the ideas guys xD
