|Yes, she will start to get her winter coat, and by spring she will have shed the last vestige of her puppy coat, and will have her full thick adult coat.
I understand that the female's coats can be thinner than the males at times - that's why the movie Lassie was always played by a male dog - but diet can have a big effect on her coat, too. Make sure she is getting a premium food, and you may want to supplement with fish oil.
Also, remember that a Collie's coat should never be shaved, so keep up at least a weekly grooming session, so that she doesn't develop mats.
Tippy looks beautiful and mischievous. Have fun with her!
