Why do you call him a leopard..? I would call him a "near-leopard" or blanket with spots.

In your experience, will he shed out like the colt in your avatar.. with only the head and lower legs solid?

As per APHC as long as spots cover the body they are described the same way on papers as the colt in my avatar.

Also.. Genetically they are the same as a "full leopard" or a "blanket leopard" they have the ability to produce plain (noncharacteristic), fewspot/snocap, and leopard when bred with another leopard.

Basically what is different about this colt vs the one in my avatar is the PATN (pattern) gene.. which says how much of his body will be covered with spots. A butt, or the whole back.. or nose to toes.

I do think he will shed out and have more spots based upon his neck and the back of his legs. Will his head also have spots? Not sure at this point. :) might keep that pretty black face and legs. Hope he does !
