Since I clipped Melodys head and neck a month and a half ago she has darkened up quite a bit. Her uncle is Kickapoo's Nickelodeon and I was wondering if there might be a possibility that she will turn as dark as him. Does anyone know what color he was when he was a yearling? What color is he classified as now? Her sire is Sierra Dawn Unos Bugattie and her Dam is Kickapoos Hot Tamale. Thanks for any info!!!!!!

Here are two pics of Melody over a month and a half ago





And here she is a day ago

Alot of silvers will turn that dark in the summer.


Most are silvery and dappled in winter and dark silver (chocolate) in summer.

Mine always get that dark in their summer coats.

Silvers change the intensity of their color with the seasons (or at least many of them do). And, then can be a whole other shade of the color when clipped. I love the color
