This is going to sound stupid - roaning?

Carolina is bay. The rain rot she came to me with is all but gone. Her thrush is gone. Farrier is coming out again next week to reassess our plan for getting her feet in shape. Yay! She's even starting to fill out a little.

Anyway - I'm curious she has started to roan out at the flanks. She wasn't shedding when I got her. But everyday I notice it more. It doesn't bother me other than could it be a side effect of how she is condition wise now? She gets a mix of oats, BOSS and complete feed twice a day plus free choice good quality hay. She's going through about a bale and a half (50lb bale) a week right now.

For reference she's a Dutch Warmblood/TB cross. Sire is KWPN and dam is TB.

Like, she's getting white hairs? I don't think it's anything to worry about. As long as she's acting okay and eating and everything. You could ask your vet next time he's out.

Norman is flaxen chestnut and he's starting to get roan-looking white hairs on his hips and neck. I think it's more of a cosmetic thing.

ok just making sure, I knew it would sound stupid. I just noticed she wasn't roaning when I got her and now she is.

It could be anything from a change in her diet to her skin. I wouldn't't be worried =)

She's 8 years old. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't something I was doing wrong. I want to make sure I'm doing as much right for her as possible because she's had a pretty lonely and crappy 2 years you know?
