Mandy, can I ask what the difference is between a merle and a blue roan?
The pic of pyper as a puppy is stunning - thanks for explaining the difference. Can you get or have you seen apricot/red roan or merle cockapoos?This is pyper as a newborn,at this age you can see the markings are very different to a blue roan pup but they are quite similar as adults,however because i will be breeding with pyper depending on the colour of the sire i use i am guarenteed merles in the litter including choc merles,blue merle and tan( quica her neice is this colour) and also some wth blue eyes,their markings can be a lot clearer too,i just love them xxx
I have seen red merle collies with blue eyes,theyre stunning and pyper had a red merle brother but what you have to watch with red merle cockapoos having longer coats is that once the coat grows you lose the merle markings then the merle is hidden and you are not meant to breed 2 merles together so im sticking with blue and choc merles,my main aim is get blue merle and tan,i just love that colour/pattern xThe pic of pyper as a puppy is stunning - thanks for explaining the difference.
