Have you Ever Seen a Hairless Horse?

Brindle coats, curly coats, spotted coats, shiny coats... I've seen them all. However, I've never seen a hairless horse before! While it's more common in cats and dogs, hairless in horses is quite rare. Part of this is because the mutation that causes hairlessness in horses tends to be fatal.

Nobody is quite sure what causes a horse to be hairless. The breeds that seems to pop up as hairless most often are Drafts and Ahkal-Tekes. A hairless horse requires a lot of specialized care that a regularly coated horse does not. They can get fungal infections and are way more prone to sun burning. Without the protective coat their skin dries out easily. Hairless horses also can suffer from stomach and dental problems which makes survival beyond a few months unlikely. Whatever mutation that is causing the hairlessness is no doubt causing issues with other normal bodily systems.

For info on Hairless horses, visit the UltimateHorseSite's hairless horse page
