I never had bleached horses....hmm.....
I had boarders with a TB and a Standie. The Standie they had bought from me, I had him for 5 years before selling him. The TB used to sweat a lot and that were the places where she was bleached. The last summer they were with me, she didn't sweat or bleach. She had a major diet change the winter before, took me a bit to convince her owner, but it seemed to have helped her. From the typical race horse diet, high grain, low hay, to free choice hay and a good low starch feed. That's nothing scientific, just my observation.
