Are there any hairless horses?

There are no "hairless" horse breeds (like, for example, sphinx cats). However, the Bashkir Curly breed, which has a curly coat, can sometimes be close to hairless in the summer if the animal carries two copies of the gene.

Also, some horses will lose their winter coat before their summer coat grows all the way in, resulting in bald patches.
