What To Test for?

So I finally decided to colour test Rosie before she leaves ( She's sold and leaving this week, specifically this Tuesday). Just wondering what to test for. Its pretty much a given that she's gray, so no need for that, but maybe roan? Need some input, and also where to test?

If she's sold and leaving, what difference does it make? Why would you spend the money? Not being mean or snarky, really curious.

I second the above. I mean, I like testing just for curiosity's sake, but I'm not sure I'd want to on a horse I sold , you know?

Was one of her parents a roan? That's the only way she could possibly be a roan, but she looks like she's just starting to gray to me.

I know it probably sounds pretty stupid now that I think about it, but it was more out of curiousity sake then anything. Sire is unknown. I guess I had " now or never" moment now that she's leaving. Probably will just save $$$ instead.
