Tan diagram

We created this diagram to help identify the features referred to in the "Standard of Perfection". The Standard, published by the American Rabbit Breeders Association, breaks down specific qualities of the Tan in a schedule of points for show covering general type, fur, color, markings and condition. For a more detailed breakdown of these features, you can click on any of the features above for basic definitions AND we prepared a helpful presentation [Tans by the Numbers] you can print out and refer to as you assess your own Tans according to the Standard.
