I had an appy who started out solid chestnut and roaned out around 15. Now he actually looks like an appy! My QH Nico has a few grey hairs in his mane and tail that he didn't have 6 months ago. He is only 10. But on the positive...i can now tell people that im not going grey...i just carry the roaning gene...LOL

My now deceased gelding started getting grey hairs in his tail and mane, as well as greying out around his muzzle and jowl areas when he got into his 20s. My 24 y/o gelding is now doing the same thing.
Geez, Ice is only 12, and I found some grey hairs in his mane a few weeks ago! Its the stress! I noticed his once all dark bay face is also getting bleached out a little bit around the muzzle area too.

Flame is a bay TWH and has grey on her face, some in her tail, and on her pastern of her only black leg. She's 30 though and it's definitely been a part of the aging process.
