    Is the upper pic a typical hen and lower pic a type-cast roo? :) Was on BYC talkin about this subject. Looked it up on google images, found the best image, cliked on visit site and back here it brought me. Is BYC pervasively popular or wat!

    What is the term for the fluff the is typically sticking up at the back of the saddle in front of the tail? These diagrams never seem to show that term.
