What are Chubari spots?

Chubari spots are something seen on some grey horses - they're also called "Tetrarch spots" after a Thoroughbred stallion who is the ancestor of most grey Thoroughbreds. Because of this, they're most often seen in that breed.

They are large white spots that show up as the horse starts to grey and then, of course, disappear once the coat fades around them.

(I was unable to find a picture I could legally use on this blog - if anyone happens to have one I could use it would be absolutely awesome).
