Can equine supplements help reduce or eliminate white spots on chestnut horses? If so, what supplements or nutrients are recommended? My mare has started to develop little white dots after a very difficult and long winter.
What breed is your mare? TB by any chance? If so, there is something called "Birdcatcher spots", which is genetic, thought traced back to a TB named Birdcatcher. Other than that, if your mare has any Appaloosa in her pedigree, they might be latent spots coming up. I heard of one case where the horse needed an adjustment in her feed, and that cleared it up, as it was not of genetic origin.
