Numerous White Spots

Numerous white spots have appeared in her chestnut coat over the years. DOB 1996. We have had her since she was 8 months old. Have previously been told it's genetic. Just recently someone suggested too much protein in feed. She is only grass fed (Paspalum grass). We have just finished the WET season (Far North Queensland). Just curious.... Which is it or is it something else?
Solution:
Just curious..... Any solutions to the question? The condition is called equine vitiligo, and I am not aware that a genetic basis has been proven, but it seems most likely. The condition requires no treatment is is basically just a cosmetic change with hair folicles losing their pigmentation.
