Colouring q!

Post by MrsSetters » Wed Jul 20, 2011 4:14 pm

This is Lola, a rescue I've just collected. Is she a roan? Or a badger(I have heard talk of badgers and she does resemble one!)

Also Is she a blue and if so what kind, or just 'grey'?

She reminds me of the Squirrel colour you can get as well, either was she is very sweet

Does that mean her colouring will change from it's current state? Sorry if that's a stupid question, I have only had hoodies before!!

black roan - she might stay as dark as she is now (unlikely), or she might go completely/virtually completely white. They will vary alot with how they end up, but yes she is already roaning :)
