Yeah there is talk of a long hair and short hair variant. I've not seen much definitive information on that yet though I'm trying to find more. In this case I blame it on the male (though I have little to back that with). He was quite the dud when it came to breeding. For months he'd shake she'd respond and he'd just sit there. Finally he was "helped" into close proximity of the female and her over zealous attempt to mate finally sparked some interest in him. I think with a randy male she'd do better. We'll see this upcoming year I guess.
