No, not having you on. They are basically a very pale "red", but not the "chocolate" red. I know it all sounds a bit wierd, but the standard is black and white, but then there's red / chocolate, lemon, merle, brown and a heap of tri-colour combinations too. I guess its the terminology, but I'm looking for Kay and she doesn't like the red (too dark) and we already have our gorgeous boy Gerry who's a standard black and white.
I'll see if I cand hunt down a photo of the colour, but think pale red...
OK, found one from a breeder in VIC. Check out the picture at the bottom of their two dogs: Penny and Blaze O Fire. Beautiful example of a lemon border collie. I wonder if they've got plans for another litter soon...
I checked and both those dogs are registered as "red and white", so I guess I should be looking for "pale red" and not "lemon".
And here's an even better breeder's site I found for all the different colour combinations. Yep, definately red and white I'm after. In fact, I've emailed this breeder now as she has a litter due any time with November availability.
