    I got some mottleds from Porter's this year..... I have mottled and regular blacks, and at the moment it's kinda hard to tell who is really who.... None of them have much white on them yet...but it seems like if I try to look, everybody has some somewhere, so I'm a little confused...lol.

    Here's a couple pics of mine.....
