Pale/darker Spots on a Solid Horse???

I don't know if anyone has seen this before, but lately I've noticed two horses with weird coloring. One was a thoroughbred stallion, bright red chestnut. He had a couple spots on him that had the appearance of being "bleached", like when you spill a few drops on a red shirt? They never went away. He died tragically of twisted gut but sired one last colt, a beautiful bright red chestnut thoroughbred like himself. He also has the bleached spots and a dark spot, right above his white star that is nearly black(although I actually think its a very dark liver chestnut). Both these horses are registered, DNA tested, etc. I'll try to get updated pictures for you. Any one heard of anything like this?

Yep, the white spots you are seeing are commonly known as Birdcatcher spots. The dark spot is called a Bend Or spot or a grease spot.

Don't believe a word smrobs says. Those poor horses are busting their hearts out to be Appys. I've seen horses rub up against freshly painted barns trying to generate spots, and just about all horses paint each other with those green grass stain spots. There's not much the lesser breeds won't do to get spots...

Lol that's actually the running joke right now. All we have on the farm are appys and ottb's, we always say they are copying the appys
