Moose as he faded

by Sarah
(Franklin, WI)

Moose was born of a black and white mother and a gold and white father. He was born and listed as tri color. As he got older, the beautiful patch over his eye faded and any other brown markings lightened to an almost blonde color. After each hair cut we notice more hold spots along his back. Oddly enough his skin has black patching throughout.
