Do you have any pictures? They do not wait until 3 to "roan out". They are born roan and stay roan. It might just be white hairs that don't indicate anything.

Judging by the picture in your "barn", she has white hairs on her withers that look to be saddle sores. She's definitely not roan but because she's chestnut, random white hairs are not uncommon and are just part of being a red horse.

I look at that picture. Sorry, I didn't really look at her legs, so I assumed liver chestnut. They do not get lighter like a chestnut would. Anyway, that picture isn't the best and I just went by what I could see. Please post better pictures when you can get some.

I have a 2yr old Peptoboonsmall bred filly. She appears to be a chestnut however she has a coontail (white rings on her dock) a nd white hairs concentrated on her withers. (shes never been saddled) her flanks are also developing more white hairs. I believe she has a rabicano gene. Perhaps this is a gene your filly also carries.
