Quick Facts Guide
Brindle is relevant to and will always be darker than the base coat color of the beast.
Brindle must be either textured with a soft or hard edge.
Along with the stripes, patches with the same color may be added anywhere on the body of the beast. These patches have to be soft edged and blended together with the stripes.
While there is no range for those patches, be careful that it is still possible to find the base coat color somewhere!
Combinations with other markings
Brindle has no maximum range.
Brindle must cover at least 50% of the beast.
Feel free to search for this marking in our CaveSpeaker gallery to get some inspiration or a better grasp of the marking.
However, be careful of old designs as they might be illegal by now due to previous rule changes!
Please do not just copy existing designs either, as those are the property of their designer!
