Spots on butt?

Hello,
I'm currently in the process of adopting a rescue Spanish Mustang, and he has a marking that I've never seen before. He is bay, with white rear stockings and a blaze, but he also has spots on his back along his spine.
I'm just curious, can any one tell me the name of this marking?
Thank you!

Do you have any other pictures of him?

It looks like it could just be dried mud to me.

Not currently that you can see them but I'll try and get some as soon as possible. It's not dried mud though, they're white circles.

Looks like it might be lacing. My bay mare has it on her back, she's a Paso Fino.

It could be strong, concentrated lacing (from unknown origin or fungal infection). Or possibly some odd birdcatcher spots?

That looks very much like injury related scarring to me - maybe he went under a fence or something and ripped his back open?

im thinking something injury related. not sure if it is lacing, i don't know much about lacing, but has the horse ever been rode? or are you adopting it unhandled?

the reason i ask is maybe its from an ill fitting breeching? not sure what you call it, but its the piece that attaches to the back of the saddle, and goes under the tail, for a horse with mutton withers? thats a bit of a stretch, but maybe a possibility. i am still with an injury.

He looks to be sabino, or maybe splash, could it possible be related? IMO it's not, but anyway, just a thought.

I think it's injury related, That's what my first impression was.

No, he's untrained and unbroke.
