Sorry for slow reply I had an issue with emails.
I see what you mean about colour difference of Apaches tone, as you say I think it is due to change of seasons and coat thickness, the proof of Apache looks amazing but as you say it’s difficult to see exact tones.
I feel the hair tone was a split between the two between the proof you have sent and the main image you’ve been working with if this is any help but as I say me an my father are absolutely chuffed with the final result…
