Depigmentation – This horse came to the farm 8 months ago (spring) with this loss of dark pigment. A fly mask was used immediately and the pink areas returned to black. Then about 4 weeks ago (September) the depigmentation occurred again. Some believe it is a mineral deficiency (manganese and zinc plus others) but there is no consistent cause or treatment. It does not bother the horse.
