Colour types.
 
I see so many people on here that see a white marking on a horses head or leg and the say it is a type of colour marking like splash or something. Why is this?

Because they are white patterns. Splash, sabino, frame, and tobiano are the most common ones we mention. These patterns all put white on a horse in various fashions unique to each pattern. It is common for a white pattern to be carried by a horse and only express markings on the face or legs.
