    he looks like a double mane black otter, but I'm far from an expert.

    I still say Chestnut Agouti. Don't Black Otter have black saddles? The darker wool throws you on the chestnut agouti.....but without the skirt wool, he would have a chestnut rear end......??

    that's right, he shouldn't have any agouti if he were black otter... I never got into any of the agouti colors, so I don't know a lot about them. Whatever he is, he's not a black tort. Maybe in person his colors are easier to see?

    Quote:Not really!!! That is my problem! I am really familiar with french angora colors as they are the main breed we raise. However, this guy does have a pedigree with no color. I plan on selling him and would like to give my best effort to list a color. He is only pet quality, but could be good brood stock.

    He's cute and I'd be happy to buy him but I'm working on Viennas right now. Not to mention you're a billion miles away haha. Anyway yes cute and unique I'm sure somebody will buy him. If you can get a bright flashlight on him you can probably see the colors more clearly. My chocolates are hard to discern in low light.

    oops, i didn't realize that was your site you were linking to...

    he's a cutie, whatever he is. If I were allowed to have rabbits again, I'd love him! Lionheads are my favorite breed.

    He looks Chestnut Agouti to me too. Send him to me Deb. Although I do need more does. I seem to collect bucks like I do roos. This is actually a color I was looking for too, darn it.

    I have a Black Otter, but he doesn't look like yours.

    CYGChickies! Viennas huh? hmmmm


    Forgot to mention I have 3 I need definate colors attached to also.
