Random spot?

I accidentally posted this under conformation crituque if you see it there as well... sorry. It was supposed to be here.
There's this horse I used to have. I don't have any pictures, but I'll try to find some tonight. She was a buckskin, but on the left side of her rump there was this random spot. It was at least about the size of my hand. It wasn't white, but it would lighten and darken with the seasons. In summer you'd see it no problem, but in winter you couldn't really see it at all. It's like an off-coloured spot of her body colour. And to be exact she was a golden buckskin. I'm not sure if it was a hereditary thing, because I saw pics of both her parents, the mother being a flaxen chestnut QH, and the father a black & white paint. Also I know even though she was registered as a solid coloured paint, her lineage was 3/4 quarter horse, and only 1/4 paint.
I'm just wondering what the spot is. Any thoughts?

I imagine things like this are almost impossible to guess without pictures. I notice a lot of your threads don't include pics. Maybe you could google something similar?

You can't get a dilute horse out of two 'normal' parents. Mom might've been Pali, or dad could've been smokey black, among a number of other things. It's sometimes hard to tell original color with pinto.

Yeah, sorry. I never think to try and find something similar. I will now.
And I'm not sure, because the mother sure looked flaxen, and I know the sire apparently throws a lot of buckskins. I have their pictures on another computer

It's sort of like the bend or spots on this guy, but bigger, but it's lighter than the coat colour, but never goes completely white either.

I think I have mentioned before that all horses aspire to be the best - an Appy. Some grunt and strain till they pop out a spot or two...some even run headfirst into trees repetitively to achieve that well known Appy intellect. None of it works, of course, but they still try...
