grey horse with BLOODY SPOTS?

I've got a question...

There is this gray horse with red roaning up his hind legs and quarters.... the owner says its called BLOODY SPOTS.

Does anybody know anything about this? Do you have pics of what that would look like?

The owner is thinking of what are referred to as bloodmarks or bloody shoulder marks (even when not on the shoulder).

All it is is a concentration of their base color that hasn't and will not grey out.

any pics of the horse in question?

It's usually called a "bloody shoulder" marking, but it isn't restricted to the shoulder.

wow!!

thanks for all of your guys' comments.

Would you consider this look pretty? Is it rare?

No pics of the horse....yet

I like the way it looks. Really different look but I don't know if it's rare or not.

Not a fan of the bloody shoulder look, but many folks find it attractive.

Is it rare? No. Unusual yes, but not rare.
