    So, was the person who told me they carried dark brown not correct? Never heard wheaten. I also was told columbian restricted, not barred columbian, though not sure of the difference.

    Quote:columbian restricted is just a phenotype(Looks) Co and Db can produce columbian restricted phenotype but Db gives you cleaner looks..

    I seriously need to stay out of genetics discussions, LOL! I cannot, cannot get all the letter designations. It must be some type of mental block. Good thing I'm not a breeder. [​IMG]

    I told you that won't do a bit of good, Kathy. Can't get it. It's blocked somehow in my brain. Tim Adkerson had a very nice genetics webpage years ago that was simple as could be and I still couldn't remember a single thing. And when you start stringing them together?? [​IMG]

    I can't remember either. I think it is something I will actually have to study to remember.
