There are less noticeable spots like that, but I suppose if she isn't TB then that's out.

So my neighbor just bought a new horse, and she has two of these spots!

I think your right CheyAut! Thanks for the link! I don't think any of us would have guessed a Gold Spot. I didn't even know what that was until now!
Thank you!
I guess the mystery has been solved!

I think I know another horse that has a gold spot. A 2yr old Thoroughbred colt. I don't have any pictures, but it is a circle on his belly, about the size of both fists put together.

I just wanted to say that a bloody shoulder is a spot on a gray horse that doesn't gray out when the rest of the coat does. It doesn't have anything to do with flea bites : ]

Thanks cloud! Lol maybe that's why I haven't see it on anything but a grey apparently! Lol and I SEEN my first goldspot yesterday! It was on this gorgeous flaxen chesnut sabino roan at the horse sale (not the auction with kill pens! NO kill buyers are allowed!) and it had HUGE tall white socks except on one sock it was the brown, then the white sock and then at the hock the sock turned gold (which is what I am assuming the goldspot was) I really wish I would ahve had the camera with me! He was a gorgeous horse and a fantastic kids horse but I don't think I ever would have noticed the gold spot before reading this thread! Lol

Huh....I always thought it was a sabino thing XD

My belgianX mare has one the size of a half-dollar on her shoulder...She's also got white freckles along her back (not injury spots as I had her since she was a yearling) as well as odd ball markings...Like a crescent moon on one knee and a star on the other, as well as a 'rainbow' shape on her forehead, but lacks any other 'painted' qualities...She's also roaning out just a smidge...nothing you can tell far away, but once you get up to her, all the little white hairs pop out lol. All except for that spot, which is a few shades lighter than her usual red coat...

Learned something new today!!!
