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.......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!
