Question about Big Jake's Coloring

<a href=http://s1168.photobucket.com/albums/r492/JLM70/?action=view&current=IMG_20130921_191932_542_zps33 5417d6.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i1168.photobucket.com/albums/r492/JLM70/IMG_20130921_191932_542_zps335417d6.jpg border=0 alt=></a>

Jake is a red roan I believe. But he has a perfect dot on his chest/shoulder area. Does this qualify him as a Paint?

Sounds like a Birdcatcher spot to me. So most likely not. Does it look like this?

I believe to be qualified as a Paint> which would be. AtHA?( I think that's the right abbreviation?).. because he isn't registered APHA right? Parents registered APHA?

Anyways passed the part that confuses me. .Marks have to be ABOVE the knee and bigger than a quarter I believe.. .. Someone else can probably prove me wrong lol

Birdcatcher spots are small white spots, usually between 1 mm and 1 inch (25.4 mm) in diameter. It is not yet known what controls their expression, although it is believed that they are not genetic. Birdcatcher spots occur in many breeds. These spots may occur late in a horse's life, or may occur and then disappear.The horse that I posted, those are birdcatcher spots.

Assuming the horse was not foaled this year or before 2005, the APHA requires 2 inches of white AND at least one registered Paint parent. If both parents are not Paints, the other must be registered QH or TB.
