So over the years we have seen people note that some of their gliders (mainly powdered out mosaics/white mosaics) get a dark spot on the back of their necks.... I was just wondering if anyone ever had a dark glider to lose part of their stripe?
I have Angel here who is a very dark Black Beauty. Today I finally got how her stripe is just disappearing....

This was her a little over a year ago:

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

Interesting that it is disappearing.

I had a couple WF gliders born here that had a small break in their stripe right where your glider's is disappearing.

Maybe it's just something that they do? Like how cats with orange in their fur will develop harmless black spots on their noses that will move around, merge with other spots, then form new ones? (If you've never seen it happen... It's weird.) I guess a better analogy would be blonde hair turning brown as the kid gets older. Anyway.... It's interesting.

Peggy, does she have any mosaic in the line? I would say a mosaic marker, but it is very odd how it is just a straight up break, and a pretty large one at that! This is very interesting, she is gorgeous though!

This post is really interesting to me as I've been noticing that my mosaic girl has been losing the spot on her head! (Losing the colour, not the fur) She always had a bit of a break, but it's been creeping up toward her nose. Weird!

I've attached a couple pics (I hope) Sugar 1 was taken in Jan 2013 (approx. 6mo OOP) Sugar 2 was taken just recently (approx. 1yr 8mo OOP)

How interesting! I only have experience with mosaics losing color. Well, my older gray suggie kids have gotten lighter in color over the years, but no breaks in stripes or anything.
