rare, I suspect that hairless horses have always been around
(see the "history" page), however in the past such
foals were probably disposed of because of their disorder, or
because they died from lack of care.

the Hairless Horse: Q&A Interview
Horses in History
page has been receiving a lot of attention via various horse
message boards. Every time there is a post, it seems that someone
will respond with "Yuck! How can people breed these
horses?" -- the answer is, people don't.
In every case, every hairless horse owner I have talked to has
been surprised to get such a horse. No one is deliberatly breeding
'for' hairlessness that I know of, and owners that accidentally
get such a foal often have to provide special care for it.
