My mare has lots of white flecking. I started a post about this a while ago, but just to find out if she's a bay roan, which we've ruled out.
Someone on that post said that white flecking can be from protein deficiency. My BO doesn't feed the best grain. It's Mane Menu by Blue Seal. And my horse only gets 4 quarts a day. Maybe 4.5 because I asked the BO to up her grain a bit since I work her almost everyday, not hard or anything, just light maintenance I guess. There's Saturday when I ride her for about an hour, but that's the longest we ride for.
She gets hay after breakfast and after dinner. It's decent hay, but it's not super rich. I actually had it tested when I went to the WHE. On a scale of 1-10 it's a 5 or 6 maybe.
Does anyone know if this is true? Or are there other signs of protein deficiency that I should be looking for?
