Your mare is grey. Grey can cause some really funky things to happen during the greying process.

Not roan, she wouldn't have all the white flecking on her face

Definitely grey. If she was roan or dun, you would expect her head and legs to stay fairly dark, which they do not. If she was brindle, you wouldn't have to tell people to look closely to see her stripes.

Not Brindle.....I say either she is Greying out from a Grulla coat, Grulla, or Grulla roan but not sure on the roan. We have raised lots of roans of many colors and she just has to much white hair throughout her face to be I say she is greying out from a Grulla coat.

Ah okay, thank you. But is it maybe possible that she was born a roan , but is graying out from that?

Maybe she was roan at birth, but roan doesn't cause grey. Grey covers EVERY coat color no matter what it is.

Yeah I know... But it doesn't have to cause it to have her turn grey. They're either born with the gene or they're not. I don't know, maybe a dna test is best

Your horse is gray. Why do you want to believe she's some sort of special color? She's not, she's an obviously gray horse doing what they do, which is graying out.

Color is irrelevant anyway, and if she isn't just as special to you being gray as she would some exotic color, then you bought her for all the wrong reasons.

Removed by mod team as unhelpful and too personal.
