Mixed hair length

The Mixed Hair Length Coat Of Horses

On occasion a horse can be seen with patches of hair that are longer or shorter than the rest of the body.  A quick search for an explanation showed me no genetic reason for this.  My suspicion lies in possibly an early sign of hirsutism (excessive hair growth) related to a hormone imbalance.  Unfortunately the reason for hair growth in humans is still not understood.
