Facial/ eye Marking Name?

I feel like I post a lot on here asking silly questions :/ but anyway, here goes, what is it called when a horse has dark circles around their eyes? I have a dark dappled bay gelding and he has dark (almost black) circles around his eyes about the diameter of a coffee mug. I just call them his "spectacles" but I'd like to know the actual name for them. Thanks in advance!

I don't know if I'm missing something here or not, but I don't see anything other than his black skin...

I just asked cause I was out visiting my friend's barn and we were talking about horse markings and I said "oh, my horse has a star, two socks, and spectacles!" and they all looked at me like I was crazy lol

Soenjer55, I don't think it shows it well on film, its basically darker hairs growing around his eyes, almost like a racoon so to speak.
