    You are going to have to keep him up out of the sun. If this is photo sensitivity? That will cause liver damage, turn white areas orange and also will cause odd hair growth/rippling too.

    And horse can die if that is what it is.

    But keeping him up is the only solution.

    I just wanted to update everyone who helped me with this post! Chase is now going to be a barn baby! I talked to the lady I board with and she said that he can have a stall in the barn (for a little extra fee of course) but he will be in the barn all day and she is going to turn him out at night and bring him back in during the morning. Also to help with the possibility of photo sensitivity she is going to make a paddock specifically for grass fed horses only to reduce the chance of anything else making him sick. The vet did look at him and did say it was sunburn and he just needs special care. Hopefully now we can get everything situated and get him taken care of! Thanks for the opionions
