Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

That's normal standard coat. His coat will change based on his environment. Cold weather verses hot etc

@dyaugo I have to take exception to you comment. It's been my experience that climate has little or nothing to do with their coats. I live on the Chihuahuan desert in south Texas and my two Sibes are just now blowing their normal coats - and both of them have heavy undercoats. It was also 95°f this afternoon. They'll regenerate their undercoat as spring turns into summer, like the insulation in your attic, the undercoat keeps them warm during the winter and help them regulate their body temperature when it's "warm" our as well.

Point taken. I thought the OP was talking about the topcoat? I understand how the undercoat provides the needed installation, but the guard hairs also provide the protection from the snow and wet climates. I feel that they will produce more topcoat / guard hairs based on the environment they live in.
