You'd know if she was a grey, horses don't grey out at 9, it starts young but goes slower on some horses than it does others.

Actually, interestingly, there is a line of PRE horses that are all greying really late, and really slowly. They have tested to be grey.

This is a picture family tree of the horses involved (not my picture, just a really good one to share).


Disclaimer: Not at all implying that the OP's horse is grey, just sharing a cool horse that is

That's really awesome, actually! Hahah
I wish I knew more about my horse's past. All I know is that her mommy died during labor and she was hand raised.

The white hairs may be grey coming in but I could be wrong. Do you know her parents colors at all? Does she have a face marking? If so do you have a picture? I've noticed that a lot of greys will have a blurry look to face markings. Her tail should have some white in it too if she were graying.

I know that a horse doesn't have to be THAT white to be considered a roan. I'm assuming that would apply to bays too. I dunno. I've seen a lot of roans and they were all super different with the amount of white.
Maybe to be TRULY considered a roan they have to be that white?

To be considered a true (classic) roan, they need a copy of the roan gene. That's all.

Yup. And while Standies do have roan, I don't think your girl does.
