It can be any color natural to the base coat, and may be with or without breakaway flecks on the backside of the marking.

As you can see the red range is present in the yellow marking placement. These are all good examples of saddle and will pass with ease. Remember not to place stray ticks on the top of saddle, only its sides/bottom end can have bits tapering off.
