Lemme just say I know next to nothing about colors, but I was looking at my guy and he's weird. Lol. But I've always noticed this but never thought much of it. Why does my palomino have a dorsal stripe? Also, I think he's sooty because his mane has some black strands. Also when he sheds out he has super dark almost black patches like on his butt and chest. But does sooty make him have spots too? He has like 3-5 big solid dark brown spots.
In the first one you can see his dorsal some and the biggest black spot.
In the second one you can see more black spots like on the inside of his knee and back.
And the last one you can sort of see how black those splotches on his butt get. It's darker up close but I don't have many good pictures.
Sorry for the length, I'm just super curious with little knowledge in this area. (:
