Spontaneous spotted leukotrichia. This horse was a pure chestnut on Saturday and had white spots throughout his hair coat on Sunday. Diagnosed at the University of Florida veterinary college, the cause is unknown. I read many years ago that spontaneous white spots in horses could be from a specific mineral deficiency, but there is no proof. If it was a mineral deficiency then how could this cooer “overnight?”
