Mama is looking relaxed

More relaxed than I've ever seen her, in fact. She's nibbling Smokey's hay while he looks out from his box. C. can't remember what she was told his color is called. I vote chocolate tort, though you'd expect whipped cream or a maraschino cherry on top. (I guess we could make him a hat.) The whole angora color thing is complex, with subtle shadings making all the difference. From my limited research online, they seem to range from red-eyed whites like Chrystal to jet black (even inside their ears), as well as all shades and combinations of grey and peach and orange, Siamese-cat-like dark points, and even spotted, like regular rabbits. Some breeders even have the the color genes mapped out on their websites.

The little guys are two days old, and we'll go play with them soon and see what color their fur is today.
