critique and coat length question

Hey so my girl Piper is just over 8 months old now. I would like to see if you could maybe give a critique and I was wondering about her coat length. She is a long stock coat pattern sable. Her mom was a standard stock coat and her dad had a pretty thick long coat. I'm thinking hers will be more medium length but I dont know how much longer their coat actually grows for??

This is Piper at 7 & 8 months old. First 3 are in her 7 month and the last one is her a day after she turned 8 months.

Thanks

She's beautiful! I would say she is a stock long coat, but I am sure there are more experienced folks who can confirm (or deny).

Can't answer the question about the coat since I have never owned a coated dog. Females usually don't have as much coat as the males in other coated breeds.

Flat withers, could have a firmer back. Flat croup that should be longer. Good angulation front and rear though her upper arm should be longer. Good pasterns and OK feet. Good color though I would like to see a darker face. She has a nice expression in the head shots. She looks miserable in the standing photos.

I can't answer your question definitively because I have asked that question and have never really got an answer.
I can tell you that my coatie is now 11 months (almost 12) and his coat is still changing slightly. I have noticed that the texture of his tail is changing, but I can't tell if his overall coat has changed much in the past month.
I also think it depends on each dog as well. My pup is definitely not as coated as some I have seen, let just say he's plushy

Thanks for your help I've seen pics of your guy and his coat is much fluffier and "fuller than my girls. I can't seem to find the answer anwhere on the internet and no one can seem to answer it for me though about when a coat stops growing. Guess its just one of those "wait and see" things lol

I'm going to guess Piper's coat will be similar to Shasta's.

Almost 8 months (sorry, not a good photo, I know, but it was the only one I could find quickly taken about the right age)


And almost 2 years old.


I patterned sables.
