Is this not chimera or something?

I believe that's a bloodmark- essentially a high concentration of flea bite marks. Here's a page that has a few other horses that have similar markings, including one on the face: http://www.ultimatehorsesite.com/colors/bloodmarks.html

It's a blood mark. It's not a high concentration of flea bites. It lack of grey in that area. That spot will never change unlike the rest of the horse.

Appy, is there anything in particular that causes the lack of greying in the area?

That's Billy Glosser's mare Warface. She's heavily flea bit in that area and it will stay bay like that and won't grey out. But she is grey.

Either just a strange combination of fleabite location or possibly a somatic mutation, where that random spot on her face missed the genetic memo that it was supposed to grey as well.

I've seen a few Arabians like that. She's a fleabitten grey, with what they call the bloody mark on her face (quite often you see the bloody shouldered horses).
