According to a member on the UK forum (on the thread posted above), most of these bays which you think are brown are indeed bays with variations....now I don't know who is correct. Anyone actually have scientific evidence?

This is the only lab that currently tests for brown. They have isolated the At gene, but they have not released a paper on it yet.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I got some winter coat pics today! Unfortunately they are not loading on my laptop, and I can only post one at a time on my phone

Here is the teddy bear, looking very dirty and fluffy in his field:P

Thank you...any other sites. I still find this very confusing as opinions are so different in the UK.

Opinions may well be different, but if there is genetic proof who can argue that?

I can't argue it as I simply don't know enough , but there are some interesting counter arguements here which go with what I have previously thought to be the case. Bit hard to link two discussions at once by I'm reading them together
