White spots on chestnut horse

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.
