    Pardon my spelling, but in Alpine coloring, what is the difference between cou clair and cou blanc? And can you define black-eared sungau?

    cou clair is off-white, tan, beige front quarters where as a cou blanc is white front quarters. If the sundgau is true sundgau except for black ears you could register that way with the discription stating black ears.

    COU BLANC (coo blanc) - literally "white neck" white front quarters and black hindquarters with black or gray markings on the head.

    COU CLAIR (coo clair) - literally "clear neck" front quarters are tan, saffron, off-white, or shading to gray with black hindquarters.

    SUNDGAU (sundgow) - black with white markings such as under body, facial stripes, etc. (you would add the black ear markings)
