Default What colour has my white-face?

Loki seems to be over the worst part of his quilling. He is now 9 weeks old. I was wondering what colour he is - since he's a whiteface, I find it hard to say.

This is a picture I took today:



It looks like his new quills have a really small dark tip. Here's a close up when he was quilling


As for his belly (mottling) I'm not sure how that's suppose to look, but I think his belly is just white? Here is a picture were you can see his belly a bit.

Looks like dark gray pinto. I'm leaning toward WB because the white is more white-white rather than a cream color, which is one of the subtle differences between Algerian and WB. Hard to know for sure without the mask though. Also he's pinto-faced with mismatched ears. (Have I mentioned he's gorgeous?)

I have a picture of his brother and sister and it looks like they have faint eye patches, but maybe that's just because they're babies... I thought of WB too. And yes he has a dark spot on his ear (not his entire ear is dark). His mother was a spot face pinto.

Here are his brother and sis


As you can see he was quite the different one of the litter :P but I love his contrast.

Yeah, even normal dark ears have a bit of a pink edge at the bottom where it meets the side of the face. Mismatched ears are adorable!

But such a big spot? It's more like half his ear, not just a small edge.



I always thought it was a spot. Or the white of his face stopping halfway his ear :P

Looks like a bit of pinto on that ear too.

Yeah that was what I was thinking and I think that you're right about the WB dark grey, it fits the picture and the description the most.
