This is Anaire. She's banded and I got her from the original breeder. I'm a bit confused about a few things though.
Her father is listed as a light, slate, spangle. But she is listed as a light grey spangle. Which, if my reading on Lindsey's page is correct, is not possible. If her father truly was slate, she would be as well.
She also has a birth date listed of 8-12-14. But as you can see, she has iris rings. She looks young in every other way, but I've never heard of iris rings showing up that early. What do you guys think? I will try to get better pictures in natural light in the next day or so if they are needed.
Amazing how different color looks with a cell phone (first picture) and my better camera. I just had to include the cell shot though, as it shows how nicely she's built.
You are correct that she cannot be split for slate, and it is very unlikely her father was a visual one either. Many greys are wrongly labeled slates if you are not experienced with the differences as the name slate is taken to mean grey
