AQHA with spot

Our aqha gelding has a large white patch on his girth area and I have always wondered where it came from? His papers say something along the lines of "this horse has white uncharacteristic of the breed" written on them. I don't see any paint horses in his pedigree, at least not close up Jacy Phoenix Quarter Horse
I could not find a very good picture showing it, its at least twice as large as it appears to be in the picture.

I would suggest that it may be white hair caused by a scar or sore at one point in time, but if he was registered young that may not be the cause. This is definitely interesting though.

White patterns DO pop up in some "weirder breeders"

They are loudly marked 100% purebred Quarter Horses, Thoroughbreds, Arabians etc.

Every white marking on a horse, socks, stars, blazes, etc are causing by a pinto pattern. Some are just expressed louder then others.

All white patterns originate from pinto white patterns it doesn't matter if they are paint or quarter horse or Clydesdale. Can you get a pic of underneath him and post it I'm kinda curious. Doesn't he have any facial or leg markings? There are a couple possibilities as to what pattern is present so I'd like to see that spot and any other white if he has any. As for the notation on his papers that was probably because he was registered during the more stringent white rules that the AQHA used to have.

I thought that was what they started doing when they relaxed the rules- allowed horses with "excess white" to be registered, but put a notation on the papers that they had an undesired trait. Or do they not do that anymore either

There always have been quarters with 'excessive' white. The rules before the change the horses could not be reg as 1/4 , a lot were reg as paint. After the rule if you had dna from the 1/4 parents you could have a double registered horse, paint and quarter.

they are allowing horses with "excessive white" to be registered AQHA now if they fit all other requirements and you are correct, they are putting notes on their papers of "undesirable white markings"

Hence both these horses are AQHA, but have undesirable white -

His only other marking is a very tiny star.
