Frankie came home with me in spring of ’16, which means this is his third(!) winter with me. He’s been clipped every time, which sometimes includes his face (if we’re actively showing) and sometimes doesn’t (if we’re focused on training/smaller shows).
One thing has remained constant: the bright orange snoot.
This is exclusively a winter phenomenon. His spring/summer coat comes in with appropriate dark bay snoot hairs.
But inevitably winter rolls around, and out pops the orange snoot.
Which sticks around for a few months, and then boom.
Once is interesting. Twice may be a coincidence. But we have an official pattern here.
And by now I’ve almost brought us up to the present day so bear with me for a few more pics.
And to wrap us up:
There you have it folks. The world’s most smoochable snoot comes in a seasonal ginger spice color. So festive.
