Help. coats?

Post by JashinsAngel » Sat Aug 15, 2015 7:23 am

So i'm pretty sure two of my boys are hooded but i had reason to believe that because their stripes aren't connected to their heads that they are called something else. I know Kisu is a dumbo and Sly is a standard. Both are black and white. I'm pretty sure Lex is a berkshire. He is a rex however.

You've probably been looking at a US site - they like to pick a name for every possible mismark. Here in the UK, we just use the term mismarked instead, with the nearest option from berkshire, hooded, bareback, and capped.
