    Loosing his brand hair?

    Twinkie is my 11 year old quarter horse and he has been shedding his winter coat and its almost completely gone. But I noticed the other day some of the white hair on his brand wasnt there instead I can see his dark skin there in small chunks, is this normal as they age to loose hair where they were once branded? He was branded within his first year or two of life so he has had it for a long time its nothing new.

    If it is a freeze brand (turns the hair white) it is fine for him to lose some hair over it; it's just normal shedding. If you notice that it isn't growing back in a certain area, though, or if it is ONLY shedding on the white part and not growing back, I might be concerned.

    Hmmm my horse has a brand and it hasn't gotten any bald spots on it so I'm not sure if its normal. But during the spring hair does weird things. My horse little hair blobs missing on his flanks where the weird cowlick/part in the hair is though.
