Fur textures

I am practising rendering textures and in the impossibility to go out and look at the real thing, I have been using photo references. But only in preparation for a farm animal fair. I have also paid attention to the various breeds: A miniature Dutch hound bitch, a Mouton Vendéen sheep from Western France - males of this breed are dehorned, a female Contentin donkey from Normandy, France, and a Large White boar, from Yorkshire.
