Sable Point, aaB_c(chl)_D_ee
"Color is to be a rich sepia brown on the nose, ears, feet, legs, and tail. Marking color is to shade rapidly to a rich cream body color. The entire body is to be a creamy color, with white undercolor. Some slightly darker shading is permissible on the saddle, but highly undesirable. Body surface color is to be lighter than the point color to give the proper contrast. Eyes: Brown."

Siamese Sable, aaB_c(chl)_D_E_
"The surface color is to be a rich sepia brown on the head, ears, back, legs and top of the tail. The surface color will fade to a lighter sepia on the sides, chest, belly, inside of legs, and underside of the tail. Dark face color is to fade from the eyes to the jaws and all blending of color is to be gradual and free from blotches or streaks. The undercolor will be slightly lighter than the surface color. Eyes: Brown."
Odessa kits at 9 days old.

These can be tricky! Shown left to right: Orange, Siamese Sable, Broken Opal, Blue, and Black Tort kits at 9 days old. The Siamese Sable and Blue look identical at first, but then the SS gets a shimmery cast to its coat (note the shimmery cast on the kit in this pix). Then it develops white ticking almost on the ends of its hair. It goes through several color changes before looking like a Siamese Sable.

"Color is to be a rich sepia (almost black) saddle, shading to a slightly paler flank, chest and blly. Color is to go well down the hairshaft, with undercolor to match shadings throughout. Saddle color is to extend from the nape of the neck to the tail. Eyes: Brown."

How do you tell a Black from a Seal? Check the eye color. The Seal will have a ruby cast. Or, per an article on the HLRSC site: "To determine black or seal color on the adult rabbit check the color on the bottom of the feet. The true black will have a grayish color there while the true seal will be a chocolaty brown color."

Smoke Pearl, aaB_c(chl)_ddE_
"The surface color is to be a rich smoke gray on the head, ears, back, legs and top of the tail. The surface color will fade to a pearl gray on the sides, chest, belly, inside of legs, and underside of the tail. Dark face color is to fade from the eyes to the jaws and all blending of color is to be gradual and free from blotches or streaks. The undercolor will be slightly lighter than the surface color. Eyes: Blue-gray."

For all torts: "Color is to be a clean, bright orange on the saddle, blending into a shading of darker color over the lower rump and haunches. The top color is to carry down and blend into a dark cream undercolor next to the skin. Top of the tail is to match the body color. Underside of the tail is to match shadings, as near as possible. Shading on the head is darkest at the whisker bed, blending into a lighter shade along the jaw line, and darkening again at the ear base, blending up the ears to match body color."
