Hello Jan

When i saw the picture of Huck Finn i thought it really looked like Oklahoma Bandit, which is possible since it's the pol parent, but checking in the register, it doesn't say Huck Finn has the spot of it's father, it implies it's an even chocolate brow, doesn't it?.



(Virginia Messick, R. 1991), Sdlg. M86-53. IB, 17" (43 cm), EM
"S. rosy brown blend; F. chocolate brown; beards brick bronze, tipped bronze; slight fragrance. Hilow X Oklahoma Bandit. Cottage 1991 "


(H. Nichols, R. 1979), Sdlg. 7861A. IB, 22" (56 cm), M-L
"S. bright tawny gold, claret base; F. same, washed claret; orange-bronze beard; ruffled. Raspberry Ripples X Cherry Garden. LaCresta, Nichols 1980 HM 1982, AM 1984, Sass 1988."

    I've attached the picture of Oklahoma Bandit.
    Maybe the label in the garden was wrong?
    Or Virginia Messick made a mistake when discribing her iris?
    I love mysteries...
