can paints roan?

So im really stupid when it comes to colors. I shaved my three year old black and white paint mare and I noticed on the black spot on her butt there were white hairs speckled all over. She wasn't like this last summer and their not "super" noticeable only up close. I showed it to a friend and she said it looks like she's starting to roan. Could she be roaning? Or is it like an under coat type thing? I don't have pictures but I'll take some today

No she is not "roaning." Roans are roan from birth.

Pictures would help us to tell you exactly what is happening.

She could be greying out, which isn't the same as roaning. I know a paint who was black and white as a 2 and 3 year old but she's light grey and white now.

Grey starts on the head, not the rump.

Horses do not "roan" out a few years later Harley. If they are true roans they are roan from birth.

Yup, could be. As NDAppy says, true roans are born roan (although you may not know it till they shed out their foal coat). True roan is not progressive. Of course he could be straining so hard to be an Appy, which is a horse's conception of nirvana, that he is popping out a few white hairs...
