I'm going to go against blanket and say there will be more tan coming in. Though will probably have a big saddle.
I can also see a bitch stripe peeking thru. 8 months is still young as far as the final coat color on a B&T. Beauty is a beauty!

I throw my vote in with a large saddle. I think a lot of the black on her back legs and such will fade to tan, but you never know. :)

I vote black and tan saddle as well. Stark at 8 months was WAY darker than that and he is considered a black and tan blanket back.

Is it a fine line between a saddle back vs. a blanket back? I really don’t know the difference. Would a saddle back have less black, whereas the blanket would have more black down through the thigh area?

I looked at pics of Jax and I think she'll fade out to a saddle. I'm changing my vote! :) Jax has a more solid black at 6 months than your girl does at 8 months and she has more black at 2 years than Beauty does right now as well.

At 6 mths



About 1 year


This past spring at 2 1/2 years

I so second this, because both our bk/red & bk/tan lightened up way more than I thought ! They both started like this, lots of bk.......

Beauty though............... :wub:

I am going with a saddle as well. Rush is a blanket back, at four years old he just started peeking some light hairs through on the upper thighs. At eight months old he was very dark. Let's see if I can find pictures.

Jenna at six months:


Rushie at eight months:


Jenna at 1 year:


Rush at about 2.5 years:


Rush at 4 years:


These pups are about eight months: Ninja in the foreground is a blanket and Milla is a saddle:

What about Indra? Probably going to be a Saddleback too.

I really don't understand why you have all these different words. Can't you just do it as the Germans? Everything is schwarz-braun which is black&tan :D
