Default New roborovski color... any idea?

Hi

I got a gorgeous robo baby couple of days ago and he has a pale color that I have not seen in any of my previous robos. I don't know if the image will show but he has a very light grey/ silvery tone on his back with a darker undercoat. He seems closest to a white husky to me... . Any ideas?
I'll post a comparison pic with my Agouti pied
Thanks

Hello and welcome to HC!

I think there are registered, experienced Robo breeders on here who may be able to tell you the name of your Robo's colour.

All i can say is that he is a beautiful little boy.

Hello. He's gorgeous. I'm wondering if he's a pied/mottled robo as some black on his back and head, although usually they look a lot more mottled with patches of both colours.

Or possibly a white faced husky? Souffle will know!

Well his face looks like a robo but she has the colouring of a winter white russian dwarf almost! You can get white robos so maybe he's a white with a bit of colour - various mutations of colour I guess.

You do get pied robos so could be that - more about colours here :

Hey,
thanks for all your info, I really appreciate it!
He really does look like some kind of a white faced robo, but also perhaps a platinum based on some research I did on google
There was not much info about platinums, so I'm not very sure though...
I also tried to get a picture of his undercoat, which seems almost black to me??

Quite a conundrum! He looks mostly white/silvery. I hope someone knows. But I guess colour patterns can vary within categories. Mottled ones usually look a lot more mottled generally.
