A Fleabitten Arabian mare

Fleabitten is used to describe one specific coat marking. A White or Gray horse speckled with reddish brown or black flecks is known as fleabitten

Origin

Fleas, much like ticks or mosquitos, live on the blood of other animals such as humans, cats, dogs, or horses and are usually rust colored in appearance. The term fleabitten was derived from the comparison of a white horse with flea bites and a white or gray horse with very similar markings.
