Bend Or spots?
 
Hello, I know someone with an ex-racehorse. He is a chestnut, and I cannot show pictures of hom because I don't have permission... But he has recently developed some dark spots on his rump, and some on his side too I believe. The owner said maybe it's from old wounds, but I know normally hair over wounds comes out white... So I was wondering if these were possibly Bend Or spots, and also if Bend Or spots can can sort of come and go with the seasons... Thanks

Definitely sound like Bend Or spots. My chestnut ex-racer has 'em, too.

They're more visible in the summer when the horse's coat is sleeked out, but they never truly go away.

Speed Racer, do they come and go with the seasons?
