  1. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I have a 14 year old off the track appendix gelding (Brewer) with some interesting markings. There are white patches of flecked hair throughout his body, concentrated on his haunches and cheek bones. The previous owner said they are birdcatcher spots, but I doubt that. Birdcatcher spots (as far...

    Can fly spray cause bleach marks on the horses coat? My sorrel mare has a few light spots that she didn't have before, and the only thing I've done is wipe fly spray on her. So I'm wondering if that could cause those spots if wiped on a little heavier here and there. They are not birdcatcher...

    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...

    For some reason I can't find the pic, but I'll post it when I do. The horse looks to be a zebra striped dun with some brindling, and random white spots over its body. I've never seen anything like it

    Ok so I know that white spots can come from pressure like ill fitting saddles cutting off blood flow to the outer layer of skin where the hair grows and not allowing pigment to reach to hair, but there are white spots (dime sized ish) appearing on my mares neck and near the top of her tail...

    Hello! I am breeding my mare (Glory) to a stud this month.... Anywho, Glory is a Bay Varnish Roan POA, and the Stud (Hollywood Maverick) is a cremello blanket appaloosa. I was wondering what I could get? Spot-wise? I know color-wise I could get either Buckskin, Palomino, or a Smokey Black...

    Brian is my beginner lesson horse. I got him two years ago as a starved and sick rescue. He was in pretty bad shape when I got him, but put weight on well and recovered well after the parasites were gone and the proper amount of feed was introduced. His previous owner said he was an appaloosa...

    I've just bought a nine month old Shetland cross and the fathers breed was unknown. Mini has pink skin but around her lips she has black spots and she also has black spots under her tail . . . does this mean that she might have an appy colour when she gets older? Right now she is a dark fluffy...

    I have a gorgeous sorrel gelding (you can see him in my profile pic) that's been having some skin issues. He's so pretty, I hate to see him scrub off all his hair. I plan on calling the vet very soon to get a professional opinion, but I just wanted to know if anyone here might know what the...

    I was riding a horse from a rental place, mind you, I had never been here before and do not know how knowledgeable or trustworthy this barn is, and I noticed something on its eye. Apart from the iris, on the white part of both eyes, were blotchy black spots all over. I was curious to know what...
