sables change so much as they grow and age. What I've noticed is they get darker and lighter with the seasons but its not always noticeable until you go back and look at pictures. Sables are notorious for coat changes. Shasta is pretty dark whereas Zena was a lighter patterned girl. Lemme see if I can find the picture I have of the two next to each other.
