Are Flemish colors mostly agouti?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby lyndseyrk » Wed Apr 14, 2010 2:04 pm


I was looking up colors of the Flemish. My mom has a Flemish cross and I wanted to verify what color she is. The colors listed are Sandy, Fawn, White, light gray, steel gray, black, and blue. So here's my question: Is a Sandy essentially a chestnut agouti, genetic wise? A light gray a chinchilla? Is steel gray a steel or a darker chin? Is blue a self? Or is part of the agouti group, too (opal?)? White is Rew? And black is self, right?
