Maybe it's just another name for it.

I think wild type was established because Winter Whites with the
agouti patterning were commonly found within their origin area.
The sapphire and pearl colorings, I think, were from the cause of
breeding. That's what I think, but I just know I'm wrong. ^^;;

*edit* Wild type refers to the original/natural type, in this case coat colour, so the others have derived from a mutated agouti allele ^^

I just thought she was patchy but the darker areas have almost gone completely, really happy I've been able to witness it as it seems to be a rare thing to find winter whites that do change coats ^_^
My Tess isn't a pure winter white, either, and her coat changes. It looks a little funny, like she has a bit of a saddle on her, but it's all quite cute. My other winter white barely changes her coat. It just gets a little paler.
