Why is this horses skin orange?


I've seen plenty of white horses and known them to have pink skin - but this looked really orange - I rubbed it to see if it was anti sun cream or something, but it didn't come off on my hand.

    I wondered about sun - but in Lancashire we've had very little this year. The horse seemed otherwise fine - grazing and alert and responsive. Thanks for your thoughts on it.

    THanks Jennifer - I would take it to the vet if it was mine, I think you're dermatitis guess is quite a sound one. I'll take another look at him next time I'm over that way.
