Here's a little advise to breeding reds, that I use in my herd - once again it is my OPINION.

I believe in keeping red to red, to prevent smut.  Breeding dilutes in, such as fawns is ok to help clean up red coloring if it begins to smut.  DO NOT take reds to ANY other color besides reds.  An occasional castor goes into my reds to help with type and coat, since it's hard to get nice type/coat on a red.  But I keep a fawn in the herd to clean the potential tipping it can create.  Keep reds with the best type and coat, and breed them - cull heavily for color, once type and coat are in check.  Color is the toughest part of breeding reds.  Find a good base line, with a strong color, so you can work more with type without worrying much about color smutting.  Coloring is hard for reds since they are an agouti color, and need to appear as a self to be shown.  Remember CLEAN reds will smut in hot and cold weather, they are a heat/cold sensitive color.  In reds, remember - type, coat, then color.  again this is all MY OPINION, and it has worked for me in my herd, once I learned the line.

According to the Standards of Perfection

A red's surface color of the body is to be an even rich tone of brilliant red that should be carried as far down the hair shaft as possible.  Surface color shoulder be as even as possible to give the appearance of a self-colored animal.  The upper side of the tail is to match the body the body surface color.  Surface color of the belly is to be a deep cream color, carried s far down the hair shaft as possible.  Darker lap spots are permissible.  underside of the tail and front and rear foot pads will be lighter in color, resembling the belly color.  Toenails are to be dark.  Eyes - Brown

Faults - Dark ticking which produces a smutty surface color; light ticking which produces a frost surface color; scattered white hairs.  Cull severely for white belly color.

Disqualifications from Competition - White spot(s); white toenail(s); blue or gray under color.
