- - hoof markings? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-colors-genetics/hoof-markings-105933/)
okay so my little paint/mustang gelding, has brown marks around his hoofs they arent big about 1 inch around and in his white markings, i was wondering what they are called and why horses get them?
so i have no pictures right now but i can get some tomorrow.
More than likely they are ermine spots. Some horses have them, some don't. All it means is you horse has a white suppressing gene that is fighting with the gene that put the white on him.
