Very interesting markings on her Diane. Is it phaeomelanin or does it stay into adulthood?

Hi Jody!
The tan markings on the nose and legs are phaeomelanin and they will tend to fade in the next few months (although some will stay in the hair fibers)
As for those curious "tan" bits on her body ... her mother didn't clean her up very well ... her body is actually all white. I'm sure she'll look a bit better after the next rain shower !

Thank you for visiting the Spinning Shepherd!
