Just a question about fawn

Post Number:#1  Unread postby ozemba » Mon Nov 13, 2017 4:41 pm


I have an adult doe who I have down as fawn vm. And as she's getting her winter coat in I guess she's got a gradient that almost makes her look like a tort I was just wondering if this is a normal thing or if she isn't fawn.

Her parents were black vm and bew. 2 granddams were bew, one bew grand sire, and one tricolor grand sire black/orange.

I don't see eye circles so I believe she would be a light tort maybe even a blue tort.

Tort is recessive. It's basically non-extension self, so yes, it's very possible.

Huh.

I actually have a blue tort buck but right now I have her bred to my tricolor. I guess we'll see what colors we get.

She looks blue tort to me

You can get faint shading in a fawn (smut) but I don't see any fawn characteristics here, just tort ones
I have shown: bruns, hares, petites, dutch, spots, Flemish, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Hollands, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, dwarfs, NZW, polish, standard chins, tan, vlops; American & coronet cavies

She doesn't look anything like my blue tort which is why I was wondering about the shading. She does look like the lilac tort listed here...

if you shine a light off her eyes do you get a red tinge to them? if so.. lilac, if not.. blue.

She really does not look lilac tort to me. Torts vary a lot in amount of shading; but her areas that are shaded don't have a brown tinge like you'd see in a lilac tort; so I'd call her a blue tort.

Here's two lilac tort for comparison: the points have a lilacy tinge instead of blue.

Then here's a blue tort with about the same level of shading
(this one has high rufus; but just look at the points)

and another blue torts from rabbitcolors.info it does have rex fur and more shading but the shade of the shading looks closer to the blue of yours

Here's a picture with flash. I see what you are talking about about the shaded parts being just blue with no brown tinge.
