Helpful Tips

Each marking has an active and dominant possibility. Dominant means the marking will always pass when bred and can even sometimes change what the marking looks like. Active simply means it must be present. We will show you an example using the marking 'Highlight'.
Active Example: Hl
Dominant Example: HL

Each marking has specific guidelines so be sure to Ctrl-F and search for the marking you are creating.
Markings ranges are a guideline and not a strict ruleset, so long as your general placement is there and not abusive you will find a smooth sail experience during approvals.
When we say a marking must be natural to your base coat color, we deem the following natural markings safe across the board: Silver, Cream, Brown, Black, White
Unnatural colors are fine provided your base coat color too is an unnatural shade, and the colors used are considered natural and relevant to your base coat color.

A soft edge simply means it has been smoothed out entirely into the design, Highlight is a good example of this termonology. A hard edge can have various brush edges, it just has to have a definitive marking edge.
