Honeymark is a marking that adds lighter colored, hard-edged patches on the beasts’ neck. The color does not necessarily have to be lighter than the base, cream or blonde colors are allowed as well!
While holes are not allowed, it is possible to add breaks between different patches.
If the beast has both Honeymark and Mask, it is possible to use the “Extended Honeymark” combination, which allows Mask and Honeymark to merge together.
This marking was inspired by the distinct whitish or cream colored patch on the chest of asian black bears, feel free to take them as inspiration if you have troubles designing your beast!

Honeymark must have a hard edge.
Combinations with other markings
The markings needed for this combination are Honeymark and Mask.
This combination inreases the range of both markings. Usually, there would be a slight gap between both markings. However, if wanted this gap may be filled and both Mask and Honeymark be merged together.
It is required for both markings to have the same color in order to apply this variation.
Honeymark has no distinct minimum range, but must be present in a noticeable way on 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!
