COLOURED ANGORA

NOTE: The judges are requested to judge the Coloured Angora to the Breed Standard laid down by the Specialist Club and not to confuse the colours with any other breed standard for short haired varieties.
SOLID COLOUR 10 Points Angoras are unique in the fact that they possess a multi-layered coat. The tips of each new coat are therefore darker than the previous coat which lightens as it gains length. This produces BANDING IN COLOURS. Rabbits should not be excessively penalised for lighter bands of the top colour appearing in the coat, but the more uniform the colour the better. WHITE BANDS are unacceptable, with the exception of the GOLDEN which is of a yellow origin and therefore has a CREAMY-WHITE band at the base of the coat.

COLOURS

GOLDEN (formerly Golden Fawn) Head, feet and tips a rich, clear orange gold. Wool lighter with colour carried down as far as possible shading to a creamy-white base. Belly creamy-white, eyes brown.
SOOTY FAWN Mask and feet brown black, wool as for Golden but with brown/black shadings on lower flanks and ears. Belly creamy-white, eyes brown.
CREAM Head and feet cream, wool lighter cream with tips to match the head. Creamy-white belly, eyes a blue-grey.
BLUE-CREAM Mask and feet blue. Wool as for cream but with blue shadings on ears and flanks, with the colour extended across belly. A blue tinge to the wool and blue tipping is desirable but NOT essential. Eyes blue-grey.
SABLE-LIGHT SHADE A medium sepia colour similar to fur breed. Ears, face and tail a deep sepia. Body wool shaded from a medium sepia on back to a lighter on chest and flanks. Undercolour fawn.
SABLE-MEDIUM SHADE As for light shade except for dark sepia colour instead of medium.
SABLE-DARK SHADE Very dark plum brown, can be almost black on mask, inplace of sepia. Often mistaken for a smoke, but coat colour of dark sable has distinct rusty tones in the wool. Eyes for all shades to glow ruby red in subdued light but brown eyes acceptable.
MARTEN-LIGHT SHADE A medium sepia colour similar to fur breed. Ears, face and tail a deep sepia. Body wool shaded from a medium sepia to lighter on chest and flanks. Undercolour fawn. The ches, flanks, rump and feet to be well ticked with white hairs, any extension of white ticking over sides and rump to be added beauty and not a fault.(It will be difficult to find the ticking in the longer parts of the coat, so it will not be considered a fault if not seen). Light nape of neck to be confined to the triangle behind the ears, and this should be as small as possible. Eye circles, inside of ears, line of jowel, inside of nostrils, inside feet and legs, belly and underside of tail to be white. White belly can have sepia undercolour.
MARTEN-MEDIUM SHADE As for light shade except that medium sepia colour to read rich dark sepia.
