Spotted dorsal stripe

I'm not sure if this goes in this section...
We have a new horse and are wondering if anyone has ever seen any thing like this. He has marks down his dorsal stripe that look like saddle sores but they go all the way down the stripe. Any thoughts?
I hope the picture shows up...

I'm having difficulty with posting a picture. Sorry its so huge. The spots look like white saddle sores that run all the way from his withers to his tail along the dorsal stripe.

One of our mare's has a "splotch" of white on her side. Just came on one spring. No idea what it is from...could it maybe be a scar from something? Other than that I am clueless. :roll:
