Name of color/pattern?

This is one of the mares we rescued. She is guessed as a QH and about 9 years old. I assume she is considered as a gray but is there a term for the "freckles" or spots? They are mostly black but there are some that are brownish. Would it be called leopard spotting? I'm thinking not because the spots are so small. Anyway, where she has shedded out, like the shoulders, are the spots. I'm thinking the rest of her body will be the same when she finishes shedding.

Now that I think about it, I don't recall seeing very many, if any, flea bitten Quarters though.

She seems to be shifting from dappled to flea bitten causing the dark lower legs.

Sinsin - all horses go through the same greying process. All horses will be flea bitten grey in between dapple grey and practically white. Some horses go through it faster (some foals grey in the womb and can be born almost white) and some slower, but ALL greys will be flea bitten at some point.

So perhaps there are more GREY Arabs, but there are not more "flea bitten" greys than regular greys because all greys will reach that point.
