It's great to see the variation you got from that cross. I haven't produced this many siblings from a single cross of AT LAST, but I did go back through records involving its sibs and half sibs and found an interesting pattern for the family as a whole.
When the half-bred mate is relatively light, JV and its offspring have produced a wide range of colors. In fact, the dark sibling that most closely resembles ANACRUSIS is a color and pattern that turns up in these crosses.
When the half-bred parent is relatively dark, there's still a wide range of colors but the darker ones clearly dominate and I have no records of white standards such as you obtained.
I do have one very interesting cross of CLOUDS OF JOY x JOINT VENTURE, which has produced only sparkling white standards so far. Sorry I'm not as good as you are at putting together composites.
