    I'm far from an expert at this but to me they look like young Toulouse.

    My guess is Farm Toulouse. But the one with the most white might be a Toulouse Pomeranian cross.

    I believe that they are not easily sexed visually. The gander is usually much larger than the female and will hover around the female and protect her and may have a longer neck and bigger head but other than that I have not heard of or read a way to reliably sex Toulouse.

    Quote:I agree with you completely. The one is definitely a toulouse crossed with more than likely a pomeranian. Enjoy!
