Standard Red fox/ smoky Gold/Smoke Red: What ever other names there are out there for a Ranch red LOL. Smoky Gold fox only refers to the fact it has dark coloration and heavy dark tones in the throat, tail and belly. I don't think I ever actually seen a Ranched red fox with a pure white throat and belly.....
I kind of have a weak spot for ranch reds, Crosses and Silvers (silvers in General ranched or wild)...........you can throw all the fancy shit out there. Yet sometimes a nice standard color just pops out among all the platinums, white marks, fire factor.
This one has a MONSTER tail, I love it. it kind of has a cowlick on the side I'm sure I can beat out. it was leaning against another fox when I had them hanging upside down over night.
I do find my self attracted to simple colors, there is something about the ranch red I am drawn to, that DARK brick Red color, with dark features in the legs and ears, the frosting on the rump. I dreamed of owning one for so long! its sometimes just very weird to request simple colors from people who breed the most extraordinary! One of the breeders I buy from has by far the BEST basic colors. while he has unique colored foxes he breeds for the fur market so his reds silvers and Crosses are to die for. So dense so Crisp in color and Just clean even fur!
These are the foxes I had gotten from him in the past!
My Eclipse marble is my baby LOL amazing fox. I have a lot of Amazing new colors this year. some I'm iffy on showing people. don't really want to start a frenzy over a color like calicos or some shit.
