    I have a few questions before I pick up a small/large Lynx Mini Rex Herd this weekend [​IMG]

    1.) Lynx Is Dilute Of Choc Agouti Right.
    2.) What is the correct undercolor for lynx.
    3.) Does anyone raise lynx mini rex.

    According to the ARBA SOP for MR colors:

    "The surface color on the top and sides of the body is to be lilac mingled with fawn. The intermediary band is to be fawn over an off-white undercolor. The chest is to be fawn over an off-white undercolor. The undercolor of the belly is to be lilac. Teh top of the tail is to be lilac, sparsely ticked with fawn, over an off-white undercolor. The nape of the neck is to be fawn."

    Faults ... "Animals lacking the lilac influence in the surface color, so as to appear fawn. The lack of a distinct intermediary band is undesirable."

    Hope this helps ... I love the lynx color, while we work with Blk otter (solid & broken) in MR. There are a strong handful of lynx English Angoras running around here!
