Default Another what kinda coat question :)

After reading Ziltoid's post below I'm wondering if you'd call these guys long stock coats too?
To me they look like the "long stock coat" in the pictures in the previous thread
They most definitely have a huge amount of undercoat *sigh* LOL

Hex (the one standing on the Hay has been sneered at by a breeder and called a "rough coat" - whatever that is, it sounds more like a terrier to me LOL and gotten a snide remark that that red colour comes from Irish Setters)

I always thought they were long stock coats but so many people called them long coats, possibly because they have a lot of feathering and Hex has hilariously huge ear floofies`
(which were always "disqualifying faults"for showing but seem to now be actually accepted as long as they have undercoat?)
Sorry, I'm still really new to all this breed Standard stuff and I don't show but I like to learn and there is so many really helpful people here

In Germany my Grandma used to call them "Altdeutscher Schaeferhund" if they had this kind of coat.

True long coats (no undercoat) are not that common. Most of us with coaties actually have long stock coats but we still just refer to them as long coats.

Aww, your dogs are beautiful

Personally I love the red colour. I've always had the more golden colour in the past but this time round chose to go with red for both of mine.

It is great to learn about the breed. I got my dogs as pets and have never had any intentions of breeding or doing shows but still have a love for the breed and am interested in the different 'types' of shepherds around.

People pretty much use the terms "long coat" and "long stock coat" interchangably.

Technically, a long stock coat is a double coat with longer guard hairs, and a "longcoat" implies long guard hair with no undercoat--but I've never actually seen a GSD without an undercoat (sounds kinda nice ). So, practically speaking, long coats, long stock coats, "coats" or "coaties" are longhaired GSDs WITH undercoat.

Yep I'm the same, I just love GSDs and I want to learn more about them. it's nice to actually get examples of patterns and colours etc. I never knew what "tar heels " were or that the little black stripes on the toes actually have a name LOL
I have no interest in showing or breeding (there's way way to many dogs ending up at shelters here already), they're just my pet dogs but I really want to learn more about training etc.
Ziltoid if you don't mind me asking where did you get your dogs from? They are lovely.
