This is a chimera marking on his face, right?

This is a three year old stud colt that just arrived at my main barn. He is already 17.2 o.O He's hugeeee.

But, ontop of being adorable, a little puppy, not knowing he is a stud and knowing just how to pull off the "gentle giant" routine....

He also has this marking on his face. Is this a chimera marking? He is totally chessie on the rest of his body.

If this is the only spot he has, I would be inclined to think it is concentrated sooty expression rather than chimerism. However, without him being tested by a lab (and they would have to do some extensive tests in his case I would think) then it really is impossible to be certain.

I only saw him briefly before I went home so when I go down tomorrow I'm going to check again and see if he has any more spots. Thanks :)
