    You can see the darkening of her face, but not the coat.

    Well crap, Fawn is not a lionhead color. What is the lionhead version of fawn?

    There is a reason I was aiming for the Siamese Sable, Sable Points, REW, Blue Pointed white, etc. They are much more straightforward.

    Quote:If I had to pick one, I would pick opal. If you look at the fur in your pics you can see the pinks and taupe colors like you can in mine. Fawn isn't a lionhead color?? Weirdos.

    Just refer to it as fawn...they should recognize ...it is a normal OLD rabbit breed color in many many of the breeds especially angoras.

    Quote:That would explain it then. Mine are angoras and Nellas are lionheads.
