It is very common in some lines, particularly German show lines, and less common in others. It really depends on the individual bloodlines. If the dam has any close relatives... mother, father, siblings, grandparents, etc... that were long coated then she has a higher chance of carrying it. If all close relatives are normal stock coats, then chances are less, but there's still no guarantee. Recessives can remain hidden for generations and only pop up when combined with a matching recessive.
