The original Tri Color line I had just wasn't cutting it for me in temperament and was being really finicky in looks as well. I took a step back from the traditional Tri Color that falls under most standards, and decided to do something with them for fun instead.
Since dropping the main Tri Color line, I have since been working on trying to make "Tri Color Texel" using the variegated gene instead of piebald. I love the varied looks of these Tri Color over the traditional ones. Their colors and patterns are so fun and it has helped take the edge off feeling the need to breed the "perfect" Tri Color, as doing so with variegated is essentially impossible to consistently reproduce.
