Every hereford I've ever seen has been tiny. Not just small like is common to most marked varieties, but even smaller than that. This is one fault, though not related to color or markings per se.
I agree that it is interesting that a lot of breeders have interest in the colors themselves but don't bother to understand how they actually come about. To be fair, you don't need to know how pigment is formed on the molecular level to breed winning mice, but it does help. It's easy to draw parallels with dogs, and very helpful at times, but it doesn't always correlate directly. At least, I think that's what you mean...hehe.tipex said:Interesting to see that a lot of breeder have only interesting of the colors...but no interesting what is the process ....
