Yup. Very normal. I would guess she did go through a rose phase earlier in life.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Yep, that is termed rose-grey! The Andalusian line I've breeding my mares to leaves them this colour, but it changes year to year. They will probably end up grey with a little bit of the rose like your mare.

It's is almost completely gone right now(winter coat). But in summer it's very visible, it makes her look like she is actually going that colour.

Most likely she was a bay at birth and each year she will get more and more white, so what you are seeing is areas or her original color that have not 'grayed out' yet.
