This is new to angel, she has dark patches on her flanks and hindquarters. Any idea what they are? Sorry If the picture isn't very good

How old is this horse? Cand we get more pics and full body? Hard to tell from that pic. Could be odd shedding hairs or a concetration of sooty.

Is she still shedding her winter coat? It could be from that. Mine grows in darker hairs right after her shedding for spring, but then it grows back in gold again. Right now, she's shedding in clumps rather than evenly, so it looks like she has rainrot from a distance.

Yea, she finished shedding about a week ago. Thanks for the help:)
