I thought I had posted this here last week. I see I forgot. :oops:

This is one of my argentes, JM Amber.





























Other than having nicks in her ears, her poorest feature in my estimation is her tail. The set-on is poor and the thickness is poor (though the length is good). Would you agree?

Also, is her color too light for argentes in Britain? In the US I was told it's a tad too light. Then again, it can be like dove where every judge has their own opinion as to the right shade!

I am interested in any critiques of her. She is currently nursing, which is why you can see her nipples somewhat.

She's a beautiful even colour and those ears are smashing! Her tail set is a bit of a funny shape, but the tail itself looks OK to me. Could be thicker but it's not a skinny tail. It looks like she has a pale nose.

As to shade, I am in no way an expert on argente, but it seems right to me from what I've seen at shows.

Thanks, Sarah.

Many of my mice fail horribly with their tails so I judge them pretty harshly. I do have some PEWs who have much better tail set-ons, but their ears are tiny and placed wrong. Figures! :p
