RINGS IN COATS
In the angora coat world, color is displayed in an uneven manner. When you look at a rabbit in full coat, you see the outermost tips and that is what the rabbit appears to be. But, lo and behold, when you part the fiber...other colors and shades of color emerge.
In self rabbits, it is desirable to have the color be as even as possible down the fiber shaft, but I have seen very few that can boast of this. One rabbit, way back in my past, had deep color down to the roots, and he was an English angora buck named Fabio. In my fantasy life, I dream of breeding an entire herd of angoras that matches his color depth. Time will tell (Hey, we all need goals,right?!?)
Here is BELINDA (reddish) and DARTH (grayish). Both are about 3 months old and you will notice the many RINGS in their coats. One set of lighter/darker colors are their baby coats which tend to stripe, but then the adult version is growing in right behind it.
