Sorry, that above reply was meant for COS. I am learning the ins and outs of this forum.

TO lassie0811: Thank you for that information! I did not realize that there was a way to look at the "coat factor" and predict the fluffiness of the coat, that makes sense of course, thanks for explaining that. I really do prefer the less fluffy roughs or the smooths, both are beautiful. I wish I was close enough to make it the collie show, but that's a two day drive for me unfortunately. There is an all breeds show coming up where I live at the end of the month, so I'll go to that and hope to find some collies.
Re: health issues, I was mostly thinking about the eyes when I was talking about being a carrier, but also hip dysplasia and the Mdr1 as well. Does it matter to have a mildly affected dog for the eyes? It's too bad only dogs clear of everything can't just be bred, but it makes sense to have a wider gene pool too.

Mild CEA does not matter too much from a buyer's point of view. Most Collies nowadays are mildly affected with CEA. "Go normal" Collies are not necessarily clear either, they just appear normal after a certain age. It's not an issue in it's mild form and you'll never notice a difference in your dogs vision compared to other dogs.

Did this answer your question or did I accidentally get off topic or answer a different question somehow?

Well if you end up choosing Romany I'd love to follow your adventure with her! Maybe we will have a puppy from the same litter !! I'll be bringing home a puppy around October :-)

COS - I'll be interested in hearing all about your experience with your pup in October! Our puppy plans are on hold until health issues are resolved with our senior dog, but things are in the works...
There is a Facebook group for Romany collie people, have you joined?
Keep me posted!
