As I used the term tri, not tricolor, you needn't raise a flap. Everyone knows what I'm talking about, so let's not be difficult just for the sake of being difficult. I'd hope you have better things to do.

You're getting defensive over nothing. :p

"Tri" and "tricolor" often mean the same thing. One is shorthand for the other. They can give splashed babies, or splashed babies with very light markings (like the one you posted, which is very cute).

About satins, have you ever found a color of mouse that you don't like in satin, that you prefer standard coat instead? Just curious. I think I stumbled on a couple satins by accident, and now I can't wait to see satins in all my colors :p

I prefer standard coat in all mice. I do have satin by accident, though. It's the least offensive of the coat varieties when it comes to breeding to standard because it is an "on/off" gene and shows well.

The fawn and red meeces I definitely prefer in satin. It deepens colors and on those it can be just stunning. PEW is another that I like better, and I can't really say why. Argente is also extra yummy in satin as the translucency of satin fur allows the pale blue to show through a bit and makes a kind of opalescence that I just love.
