Good luck Apache, may your dapple dream come true! Phoenix's dam is a dapple grey so I am thinking maybe they are part of her genetic make up and will get more and more defined over the years (that may be wishful thinking). This is the first year that they have been quite so distinct. Of course they will disappear when her winter coat comes in but hopefully they will make their appearance next year as even more distinctive markings.
Forgot to add that this is also the first time that I have seen dapples appear on her rump so they are definitely becoming a stronger feature.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.D Adams
