    I've seen some people selling "American Longtails". What would be considered an AL? Does it have to be 2 long tailed breeds crossed, i.e. a Phoenix/Yokohama cross to be considered an AL? What about a Jap and a Phoenix, would that be considered an AL? Thanks for any info. [​IMG]

    They also may simply be phoenix of a different color than the standard allows for.

    Here is my site that explains the idea on the front page:


    PS Although I have not changed my website yet, I no longer am offering anything for sale. It will be changed shortly to just an infomational site.
