What would these white spots on a TB mare be called?

Hi everyone!

I recently bought a OTTB mare, and she has some interesting white spots on her rump.

I was wondering if they have a special name? I was thinking maybe rabicano but they look like spots then roaning...

I threw in a pic of her pretty face, just because I could!

Thanks Taffy!! I think so too - but I am most certainly biased!

I googled them - they are named after the famous Brindle TB Stallion Birdcatcher who is amazing!

I was only researching him a few weeks back!

Birdcatcher spots are small white spots, usually between 1 mm and 1 inch (25.4 mm) in diameter. It is not yet known what controls their expression, although it is believed that they are not genetic. Birdcatcher spots occur in many breeds. These spots may occur late in a horse's life, or may occur and then disappear. The name comes from a TB stallion called Birdcatcher who had some odd white markings.
