Came across this picture in another group (horse is for lease if anybody in the Eugene, OR area is looking) and was curious as to what the gurus thought was going on genetically. Unfortunately this is the only photo, though several people have asked for more (would love to see a face shot).

It looks like lacing gone wild. It could also be caused by an old fungal infection, or sun issues. There was a mare that was getting "lacing" on the edges of her dapples from standing in the sun and getting a sum burn (Idk how that works but they fallowed vets orders and it went away).

Here is an example of "extreme" lacing

Another photo of the OP horse by my friend Dee Dee Murray taken a year or two ago. The OP horse is a saddlebred and reportedly a normal chestnut until the age of two. This horse was on CL for sale at one point (Feb 2012) but caused such a stir they decided to keep her (at least that was the story I heard).

Interesting that she seems to be getting lighter and lighter (legs are lighter for sure in the new photo).
