Wrinkles

I just got a horse that was out on loan to someone. When it came back to the original owner he has bleached hair on his stomach and funny wrinkles. These were not here when he left the farm. Anyone seen anything like it before?

WOW! Never seen anything like that! What do you mean by 'bleached' hair? Like someone dyed his hair?

He is a black and white paint but the hair on his stomach is bleached like it was in the sun, but normally that's on top and his goes under his belly.

I see the same type of discoloration on the (ahem - trying to be PC here) "less often brushed horses".

Manure and urine will bleach the coat out if there is little to no brushing to keep the natural oils in the coat.

That is strange - I can't imagine what could have caused that - could that person maybe have put some sort of hair color or some other color enhancer to even out any sun bleached area of hair before a show or something? It does look like there was a skin reaction to something. I hope you get it figured out - let us know....Good luck
