    We are wondering what color one of the kits is. They are all otters and silver martens of some type, but one of them is a little lighter/browner than the blacks. I am wondering if he is a seal.

    It might be a seal. It's kind of hard to tell. Our Nethies and Mini Lops are all easy colors LOL. I know that Otters and Silver Martens aren't ARBA accepted colors yet for mini lops.
    Here's a link to a color guide that might help you. It comes in handy sometimes.

    its not a seal. it has a tan pattern and seals are solids


    if the parents are otters and silver martens, its a marten ( if the belly/tan pattern are silver) or an otter ( if the belly/tan pattern is gold)

    it looks like it could either be a chocolate marten or a sable marten.. but the pics dont show much colorwise.. if the brown color is shaded.. its a sable.. its looks like a chocolate marten

    Yeah whatever color it is it's an agouti and seals are not agouti.

    Seals are a non-showable color in Netherland Dwarfs, so I really hope he is not a seal. He is a silver marten of some sort.

    Maybe later tonight I can get a better picture of just him. His dam is a black otter and his sire is a black silver marten. He has the markings of a silver marten. SDK I am sorry about posting that a seal is non-showable I did not see your post right away about him not being able to be a seal. Anyhow, congrats on working towards your registrars! Thanks for all the help!
