Ladue's Silverado

New to Somerhill, Silverado is a Satin Angora junior buck.
He is listed at a chinchilla, but I'm thinking he might be a sable
chin.  I don't have enough experience with the rarer colors of
Satin Angoras to make a call.  Could be brassiness from the rufus
or even sunburn.  We'll see what his adult coat looks like.  No
matter, I love him, and can work with the sable gene to get sables
and sable pearls.  Both lovely colors, and still rare in SA, which
is what attracted me to him.  He does not have the density of Somerhill
rabbits, but has a killer body!  He's also got a very nice personality.

Oh Lisa, sable and chin sating angoras, sign me up for that project! Do you have a REW satin doe?

A very handsome young lad.

I have since learned that chinchillas often have brassy coats as youngsters, probably due to the prevalence of rufus in the breed. Sable is exceedingly rare in Satin Angoras.
