Taylor has a thin bit of a 'saddle' but basically he has a very soft and luscious coat. His coat is not in any way a fault for show purposes and the texture of his coat is similar to his father who is an Canadian, New Zealand and Australian conformation champ. So I cannot agree that soft coats on Pems are a fault or should be otherwise. I had a show champ Corgi who was short coated (but not overly so) and another who was thickly coated. Of all the Pems in the Wellington Welsh Corgi Walking Club, Taylor has the softest coat apart from Holly, the fluff.
