Is my Gelding a Sabino? Or?

Hey guys! I finally got some good pictures of Leo's markings today. He has 2 hind stockings, a front left sock and a white spot on his right side, as well as many (at least 5-6) smaller but very distinct dark spots, and markings on his hind legs similar in colour to his dark spots. He also has several really small white marks, or more lots of white flecks that are trying to be a spot but mixed with chestnut hair too. Does this classify him as a sabino or..? He's a 2003 Belgian draft x TB. If he's just a standard chestnut, I won't be offended and I won't insist that you're wrong and he's a special magical colour. I'm just curious! I will say, though, that the dark marks are definitely not mud, and his white spots aren't from rubbing or scarring as far as I can tell.

Dark leg markings:

Most prominent dark spots (you can see his white spot above them as well):

And just because he's cute:

Thanks very much! Hopefully I'll be enlightened about his colour; I've been saying "chestnut with some random spots"... !

It does look like he has a form of Sabino. The white lip and jagged marks on his stockings are indicators of Sabino. His facial white is very symmetrical as well, also an indicator.

Agreed with CLaPort I just wanted to add its not uncommon for chestnuts to have random white ticking and he looks like he had a couple of bend or' spots (the dark spots).

Yeah bend or' spots are pretty common I believe the current theory is that they are concentrations of sooty. My colt has one near his hip.
