Pinto markings can get smaller as they grow. The whole back half of my Lucy's body was pink skinned and quills and gradually continued to shrink until she was left with just a quarter sized pinto spot on each back hip.

Ok that makes sense. So the normally pigmented quills can end up snowflaking.. since they're just like normal quills. Right?

[edit] nevermind I re-read your post again and it was very clear.

Thanks a bunch!

Nope, pinto markings will stay the same. They are basically spots on the skin without pigment, making the quills white. You can have a snowflake pinto, snowflake is white quills on regular colored skin.

Can pinto markings change with quilling?

Hi guys,

I've got kind of a random question about pintos. (hopefully posting this in the right board). From what I understand, pinto hedgies get their patchy colorations from the skin underneath. Does this mean that the patterns are fixed as they grow, or throughout quilling, can the patches change shape/size? Is it still possible for them to snowflake?

I'm just curious about how pintos "work" as far as the coloring. Mine is coming home in 2-4 weeks and I've just been wondering since I picked him out. (today haha)
