What color?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby gilbie » Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:30 am

I am fairly new to English Angoras, we've had 1 for a few months & are in love. So much so that I'm getting another today, but I'm puzzled as to what color she is.
I've been trying to figure it out on my own, looking at different examples online & researching the color descriptions, which is how I found this site. I appreciate any help you can offer! :D

She looks like a Black Pearl to me (genetically the same as sallander), but it wouldn't surprise me if she ended up being actually a dark Sable Pearl (genetically the same as sable point) either.

Black or chocolate tortoiseshell? Is her nose black or dark chocolate?

If the feet are also black or chocolate colored, then as SableSteel mentioned, she'd be a pearl. If they're the body color, then a tort. Hard to see feet color on angoras when they have so much fluff. Maybe that's a dark foot in there? Then she'd be a pearl of some sort. Pearls have the chinchilla gene as well as the non-extension gene for torts and fawns.
