She's part leopard, hence the leopard print.

What do you see?

Here is my color thread with her showing all her pictures. Across her back is the only place that's patterned like this. However, the same gold tones are all over her.

Is it perhaps where the new hair is growing in not sun faded? When my black grows hair back from a scrape it's black instead of faded.

Lacing

  • Also called giraffe markings, marble, cobweb or lace
  • Can be from a fungal infection called rain rot or a blood disorder
  • Can be associated with appaloosa or pintos
  • Cause is unknown
  • Generally develops over time
  • Australians call it Catbacked
looks like what your mare has.

*Insert something witty*

I am going to pick up some anti fungal shampoo as suggested just to eliminat that any fungus is the cause. It very well may be healthy hair growing in beneath the dull, wormy coat.

Either way, it is very interesting while it's there!
