Seriously, there are mouse shows? Where are they held? Is there a website with show dates? I'd love to go to one.
yes, mice are bred show quality just like cats/dogs ect. most mouse shows are in PA from what I've seen.
a true tri-color is a base color (black,blue,agouti ect, with white and another colored patch, usually brown, for example a "black" tri-color will have black, brown and white patches, and look much like a calico cat, but the spots must be even throughout the body, tri-color is what I hope to get into I've already got two breeders I'm friends with and am talking to.
a well marked brindle will, infact look alot like the the color of brindle dogs, a dark base color and dark even stripes, a lot of petshops sell poorly marked or "sooty" brindles.
and yes, there are blue brindles, I used to breed them, they're quite striking when they look "right", otherwise they look like poorly marked blue selfs.
I would post a couple really good sites on here that I am a member of, one is mostly UK based, and the other is for US. but I don't want to jack the thread
