well, with my bay, i don't know anything about her parents, just that she's a QH/arab and that just what the guy i bought her from told me. she had a younger sister there too. but i don't know what parent was what, what color, not even any locations.

while i've been trying to search for an answer i have come across many many people discussing changes in their horses. and many, at least say, that their horses started roan, not grey, after some years. born solid.

not sure if its relevant to this topic, but when she gets nicked her hair grown in BLACK. and her summer coat is looking like its going to be very light.

but for all i know one of her parents was a roan

Having horses means: There is always hay in your bra. And you're never quite certain on how it got there.
You realize that you just clucked at the dog

your QH/arab mare ?? Shedding can make their coats appear different shades for sure but by your description of the color changes with this mare & age, I wouldn't be surprised if she IS turning grey.

I'm with the others who have said a roan is born a roan, it has to have one roan parent..and so on..

I'll say more with pictures of both horses but it's sounding a lot like you want the horse to be roan a good bit more than it is "roan".. It's not a rare thing for any horse to have white ticking all over their body and throughout their mane and tail.
