Question Why does my bay roan have "spots"?

Hi just wondering why so many roans I've seen including my own, have "spots" not real, appaloosa, ar pinto spots, but the tortoishell type spots. The first pic is of him as a 2 yr. Old, he had no "spots"

They're called corn marks. They are often caused by scars - instead of going white, they go back to the horse's base colour without roan. Lots of roans have them.
