The Moor is, in effect, a jet black veiltail with spherical protruding eyes. Far Eastern imports generally have good eyes and colouration but a somewhat ‘rectangular’ body outline and a thin-lobed, deeply-forked tail. Breeding for the broad tail seems to result in smaller eyes and a bronze or silver belly, and it is a challenge to prevent the deviation of these characters from the standard whilst improving the tail.The colour should be deep black only without a trace of brown or silver.
