And that is the entire problem Will, from the sound of it, Dan only bred blood related "Sables" to each other. It doesn't sound like he did do much if anything about outcrossing the genes to actually determine whether they are actually Mendelian Traits at all, so all we can determine at this point is that they could be line traits, perhaps strong line traits. Hopefully down the line with enough outcrossing can we determine whether these are actually Recessive or not, however, that important bit of work has either yet to be done or proven.

Sometimes it can take 4-10 years of breeding and outcrossing to prove out some traits, part of that time of course is lost on just raising the generational offspring up. Dan might have been breeding these for a few years, but I've not heard much in the means of outcrossing. So I'm still a bit skeptical about the genes actually being proven, but I've put my trust in Dan that he understands what it is that he is working with and that the Sables are in fact what he claims. If not, then there's going to be some disappointed people out there.
