getting the colour right is the biggest challenge of the variety.You will have to keep selecting for colour and also blend other colours,cinnamon & agouti into the breeding.Having said that it doesn't matter what shade they are unless you want to show or you particularly like the darker colour.The darker colour wont just happen though,lots will have to be bred and selected from.I'd put one of the baby does back to the father and see what you get,some nice satins if nothing else.

does the shade need to be dark for showing? i do want to show reds... and on a personal note love that rich dark tone also :D
Hopefully there will be some reds at Bristol and we can have a look. I don't think I've seen many reds being shown before though, but we might get lucky.
