I have a chestnut filly who I bred in 2005. She's about 2yrs now and she's starting to get white flecks through her coat. They are not concentrated in any spot, just mainly through her body. She's out of two palomino parents, one really golden, the other a lesser shade. When she was born, she was a really weird colour. The top half of her was a chestnut colour and the lower half was an grey, off white kind of colour. Why is she getting these flecks now?

Beth,
Can you post a pic of her? What breed is she? Sometime Appaloosas "color out" as they get older. Sometimes a horse just "grays" as they age. My sorrel yearling quarter horse filly is shedding out this spring and she has white hairs throughout her coat particularly on her butt! They aren't enough to really notice unless you look at them hard, but they are there.

IS SHE ROANING?

I can't post any pictures yet but I will try and get a frewebs account soon. She is of mixed blood, her sire is by a Thoroughbred and is out of a mare that has a high percentage of Arab blood, if not pure Arab. Her dam has Australian Stock Horse breeding, probably some Quarter Horse and maybe a smidgin of Arab somewhere there as well. The Quarter Horse and the Arab show through the most in the filly though. Her dam doesn't show any signs of roaning at all, I don't think the sire does, but next time he's near the fence I'll check him [he lives next door] but I'm pretty sure he dosen't either. Both sire and dam come from unknown background breeding wise. The filly's white hairs aren't there enough to stand out, you don't really see them unless you're looking, the same as your yearling Catherine. Is there much of a difference between chestnut and sorrel? Jenni, I'm going to do some research about roans, I don't know enough to say yes or no.

Are they white hairs, like roaning, or white spots? I had a SWB mare that was 3/4 Tb that started getting white hairs at about 4, and over the years they slowly grew into larger white spots, some as big as a quarter. By the time I lost her at 14, tragically, she has white spots all over, including in her mane and tail, where the hairs turned white. The official vet proclamation was "unknown random spotting" or vitalaigo.

It's weird, but it happens. It seems to be more in TB types. It's not an Appy thing.

Sora they are definately not spots. They're just white hairs that appear to be random. Thats why I thought Appaloosa- they colour up as they get older. Read my "Solid Appaloosas" thread- the palomino mare I'm talking about there is her dam

TB's sometimes get "birdcatcher" spots. They are white spots named for the TB, Birdcatcher, that sported them. I've known several horses to get them and all had TB blood somewhere in their pedigree.

The filly's sire was sired by a well bred TB, although his owner does not remember the stallion's name so I can't trace the pedigree. Her dam does have faint mottling on her udder[is a solid golden palomino] which is why I thought maybe Appaloosa. However as both my filly's sire and dam come from unknown backgrounds I think I will just have to wait and see.
