Is this frostbite?

We are in northern US and it has gotten bitter cold this week. I have a 2+ month old calf that is still with mom and with the herd. They have shelters but they aren't in them much.

I noticed the calfs ears suddenly look different today. She's black but now the upper part of her ears look a light brown. In the past few weeks I have noticed that she was getting a reddish brown look to her hair around her nose and ears but this is much more extreme than how they looked before.

Could the change in hair color be a sign of frostbite? Thanks.
