The way I think of plush vs short stock is the way the hair lies. Both have fairly short hair length (if you plucked out some hairs to just look at length).

But the short stock coat lies tight and flat against the dogs body. And the plush is fluffy and sticks out more from the body.

Istie shows a great example of the plush (nice looking dog, can't wait until those ears go up!)

Myoung's dog has a stunning look, and shows the confusion going the other way between long coats and plush....

Here's my Bretta and you can see she's a very short stock coat, and it doesn't slow her down at all no matter how frigid the weather.

In between is a beauty! I guess that is what Kacie would be as well.

To confuse even more.. what is a "fancy coat"???? I have heard this term used also. Is it just another name for "plush coat"?
