<<A yellow from Sly Fox X Lady Celeste is a mystery.>>
At first glance, Sly Fox appears to be a red bearded white from pink
breedling. Although Bubble Up is pink, all of it's ancestors are not.
(Joseph Ghio, R. 1988). Sdlg. 84-88X. TB, 38" (97 cm), E-L.
Salmon pink; red beard. Romantic Mood X 82-166: (Exhilaration x 79-38Z:
(Blushing Pink x 76-176Y: (((Ponderosa x Debby Rairdon) x (Show Time x
San Leandro)) x 74-1K: ((New Moon x ((Gracie Pfost x Ponderosa) x
Ponderosa)) x Valentina)))). Bay View Gardens 1989.
BU adds a lot of other colors and patterns which can create odd
occurrances. No? Can you not get throw backs for many generations?
I've found this to be true when working with some Ghio reds. (which
contain some of the same genes.)

I'm very interested in more details of crosses of Sly Fox producing

A yellow from Sly Fox X Lady Celeste is a mystery. As reduction of
yellow is supose to be a recessive, none from this cross should have

'Sly Fox' is a pure white and will easily throw yellows (I've used SF
in other crosses in the past and have gotten a majority of yellows from
it). Lady Celesta is a very pale blue. I don't think I suspect
different pollen parents so much, ......as much as I DO wonder where
that yellow spot and/or wide honey ringed pattern comes from on the
yellow sibling. Any thou
