Genetically, I highly doubt she is roan. However, she COULD have been registered as one, since registries have a bad tendency to muck things up a lot.
If she was rabicano, being as solid as she is, she'd definitely have the white "skunk" tail at the very top.
As for roaning in general, it's a pretty consistant mix creating a whole new shade. The legs and head will always be a shade darker then the rest of the body.
My Arab mare has the same thing going on, scattered white hairs throughout her entire coat. Another good way to tell is that roan is like grey in that non-roan parents CANNOT produce a roan foal. One of her parents would have had to be roan for her to be roan.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
