Well, we launched the website last month, advertising on the AAA, AABA and Optimate messageboards, and in the Vic Central region magazine 'The Yarn'. Great to see the response from several studs. We have a limited number of FREE display ads available on a 'first in first served basis', so send the url of your image and the url for the link to me asap ( wesleyianhill@yahoo.com.au).

A recent discussion on blue-eyed whites (BEWs) on the AABA messageboard caught my interest, and I followed a link provided to an article by Andrew and Ann Merriwether.
Towards the end of the paper, the author proposes that the reason most grey alpacas have a tuxedo pattern is because the genes for grey and tuxedo are on the same chromosome and close to each. While this is possible, I beleive there is more to it than just this.
Consider the case where these genes are seperated by 1%. If we start with 100 grey/tuxedo alpacas, then in the next generation we would expect to have 1% cross-over for these genes, so 1% would be solid grey. After 25 generations we would expect to have 20% solid grey. This is definately not the case.

However, I can think of three reasons why the grey and tuxedo genes are 'linked':
1. (Extremely unlikely) One of these genes is a recent mutation. It would need to be VERY recent;
2. (Highly unlikely) The grey and tuxedo genes are extremely closely linked, say 0.001%;
3. (possible) The grey gene is usually lethal when the tuxedo gene is not also present.
