stripe or blaze?

I can't decide whether my horse has a stripe or blaze on his face? Please help. This is a pic of him.

To me it looks like a blaze, but others may disagree

that's what I was thinking. But it gets so narrow in the middle.

On his registration, if it declares stripe, then it's considered a stripe - I had questioned the marking on my Morgan's forehead before realising that because of her unique cowlick (her marking looks like a thunderbolt, but according to AMHA it's a star with cowlick to the left), it's considered a star.

I would likely call him stripe-faced, though technically, he has a large star, stripe, and large snip (how's that for complicated?lol). What I was always taught is that blazes are uniformly wide all the way down.

But, I think it's one of those things that will vary from person to person as it's only opinion.

IMHO, this is a blaze

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I don't think they cover that on his registration(APHA)? I remember having to send pictures and giving his coat color and pattern(tobiano).

The thing is I am making a "profile" for my horse on the forum and I don't know what I should put down.
He also has small dollar sized round spots on his right shoulder. Does that count for "Flecking or ticking"?

I think those qualify as part of his pinto pattern.

Flecking or ticking would be something like what this mare has on her head/face

ok. As for his white body markings, would they count as "white spot","white splash", or "white hairs"?
