Random white hairs
 
So since I've been being told that she's probably not a bay roan, and we know nothing of her parents.
I was wondering what these white hairs could be from? She's going to be 8/9 this year (we don't know her birth date either, just the vet's guess)

Haven't seen a photo, but could it be protein deficiency?

Depends where it is also... might be from the saddle

I still think either random white hairs that happen to have clustered in a few areas, or rubbing injuries. The one on her butt, where on her butt is it? Like on her hip, or by her tail?

You talking to the OP or me?
If me then please comment in my thread....I don't want to dirty up the OPs with my stuff :/

Sorry. I was talking to the OP :-)

I don't have any good enough pictures. THe majority of the white hair is on her neck, withers, and alllllllll over her hind quarters. Then there's less everywhere else, they're not as condensed. I'll try to get some good pictures today.

I have a chestnut sabino that has white flecking through out her body.......I think it has something to do with the sabino gene.
