    My former QH gelding was chestnut/sorrel and he had little sprinklings of white hairs through out his body. I had searched it once and read an article that called it "roaning" not to be confused with "roan". Just random white hairs sprinkled around....on his flanks, neck, throat latch area, hips, his back.

    Spot is saddle issue at some point. Pretty boy by the way...sorrels are one of my favorites.

    They are the same thing, only in "western" terms, a sorrel is a chestnut horse & a chesnut is what would be termed a liver chesnut in "english" terms lol.
    Kind of like how "western" folks call a canter a lope.
