Herefords with poor markings?

I'm wondering if there is a specific look to herefords if they end up with poor markings. Are there any? :D

I was wondering if it was anything like banded, sometimes causing distinctly similar headspots and such?
I have some mice, that are 'broken marked', but I think that two of them (related) are poor bandeds with headspots, and that 4 or 5 of them (related, but not to the other two) look more like herefords, with a band trying to form.

I don't know, I guess I'l making connections and getting curious. :lol:

I don't know any thing about Hereford genetics but I can tell you that they have a humble background,no fancy breeding program as such.They simply cropped up in a feeder breeder colony by chance,that breeder shared some photos with a mouse club member.That member liked them,took a few on and set about establishing them as a new variety.All the ones I have handled have been of decent size,not at all like the dutch.Over here red,black and chocolate are the most common colours.
