    Cross a d'Anver to an OE and blamo! You're halfway there. Than backcross the offspring to the OE and keep all bearded/single combed babies. OEGB and d'Anvers have similar type, and muffs are dominant. Bearded OE are hard to find, but I did see two pairs at a show a few weeks ago. I prefer them clean, but they're nifty.
