Steel (Es)

The steel allele is one of the few rabbit color alleles that is dominant, but is NOT the wild version. Rather than go through ALL the colors again with this gene, we will describe it's behaviour in general terms and then display images as they become available.

This allele is part of the Extension-Series, which controls how far the various bands extend along the hair shaft. Steel causes the tip color to extend well down the shaft of the hair, which usually makes the rabbit look much darker than the non-steel equivalents.
