I bought my thoroughbred mare as a 3yo 2 years ago from the slaught pen. She is dark brown in colour. When I got her she was solid brown, not a white hair on her (once her fur grew back properly that is) apart from her 1 sock and the stripe on her face. About a year ago she started to get white hairs all over her body except her legs. Over the past year she has goten more and more white hairs. From a distance you can't tell but close up they are every where. This week she has gotten a white spot on her rump and one on her shoulder, they are only small. I've heard that thoroughbreds commonly get these flecks and specks but that's all I know. Can anyone tell me more? How many spots is she going to get? Does anyone have photos of other horses who have developed these spots?
Thanks in advance!
