    Yes, they are evidence of a another breed in the gene pool, but from a breeding that was done before the stud book was closed. For example, the tan points you mention are thought to be from bringing...

    If you're able to read, you'd see that they DO have a practical purpose. By your logic, we should remove everything that poses a risk of injury.... I hope you enjoy carrying around an earless stump.
