White Spotting (previously called 'Dominant White') is a general name given to a large number of white spotting patterns caused by mutations in the KIT gene. 30 'W' mutations are currently known. There is a large amount of variability in the amount/pattern of white caused by each of the mutations (W1-W30). Most 'W' mutations are breed or line specific, having originated in one specific horse.
