Bend Or Spots

Bend Or Spots are darker spots, where coloured pigment is concentrated, on a horse’s coat. They were named after a Chestnut Thoroughbred named Bend Or who exhibited several of them.

Bend Or Spots Genetics

Often they are connected with the presence of Sooty on the horse however in other circumstances it appears that the spots are their own modifier on the coat. The Bend Or Spots can range from small dime sized spots to as large as oranges. The number can range dramatically from only a few to many on a horse. Bend Or spots can be found anywhere on the body, sometimes they clump together on the body and other times they are found stippled throughout the body.
