She is probably just roaning then(:

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark

The only horse that "roan out" as they get older are varnish appys. Also in order to have a roan a horse must have a roan parent. Roan does not "hide." If a horse has roan, it is roan...


Sierra - you mare has the typical white flecking that most red based horses end up with at some point in time. Some of white could be from various small injuries to the skin or it may be something else. You mare is not roan. She is not rabicano. She is not grey.

NdAppy I am clear on this.
I did not think she was a roan/grey because like you said she has no parents that are.
I did not think she was rabicano, but due to not knowing much about it I was not 100% sure.
I figured it was just the typical white flecking but wanted to get others opinions, just being over cautious, not knowing if it was caused by anything that may be something to do with heath ex..
Thank you for your help.

With winter fuzzys, it is not as clear, but this is the best pic of Jack's tail I could get. In all honosty, he was bought as a grade horse, I don't show, so what he truly is, doesn't matter, but I am courious.

NdAppy: That last pic I had up of him, I can honostly tell you, that is not dust, it is white. It took me till after his first bath to realise it!
