The mother looks very white in these pics however she is yellow on the back and I have noticed as her winter coat is shedding she is becoming more yellow. I have also noticed her lately digging the snout pits and found a bunch of them under some of my peach trees.

Naw, my daddy broke that convention when he married my mother (second generation Swede), and moved all of us from our family concentration in Kentucky. I married a Cuban, and now our family tree branches nicely.
