Ugh, That is mange on that one for those that don't know. Caught them like that in the snow and it is hard not to feel sorry for them.

Will add that my experience with putting up coyote fur, years ago, was that darker colored hair was coarser than light or white colored hair, especially on dark colored coastal coyotes.  Some of the dark ones with a big black chevron over the shoulders are striking as they walk around or even as a rug but are not anywhere near as lush and nice when made into garments as light colored fur.

 The light colored ones have fine hair and the really good ones have so many hairs per square inch that it will not lay down but stays fluffed out, standing up.   Just reread the thread and I think what I'm describing is what Humptulips called loft, and that is a good term for silky fine fur so deep and thick that it stands up away from the skin.

The best one I ever handled was shot by a friend, his turn to shoot.  From cold country far from a coast it was a creamy off-white all over.  Down the back it looked like someone had sprinkled a trace of fine black pepper, the last 1/32 of a few guard hairs tipped in black, otherwise all white.  The underfur was slightly pink when you ran a hand over the fur.  It was so fine and so thick that all of the silky hair stood up and could not lay down.
