Default New here, Tan sable or black and tan?

I'm confused as to what my girl actually is?

She looks black and tan saddle (duh) but when I look at her individual hairs they are light at the bottom with a black tip but only on the saddle. I'll see if I can get a close up of her hair parted

She is a beautiful girl, I don't think she is a sable, but I am not that knowledgeable to say for sure. Hopefully someone will come on here later that can give you a more accurate answer.

What did she look like as a pup? Sables start out light, then darken. B&T's start dark and then lighten! She may be a patterned sable but my guess is B&T

Black and Tan with prominent bitch stripe.

If she were sable, the undercoat would be a beige/red colour underneath the saddle patterned sable hairs. So the pic where you show the close up near the shoulder, the undercoat is solid black right up to the skin. Thus, Black and tan.
