Dog show denizens are well acquainted with how a setter is stacked in the show ring: Gentle fingers hold up the head, the tail is extended to its full glory, and the tip is held by an open hand. There’s a name for the long hair that hangs clown from the tail of the setter, and it’s “Comb-Fringe.” We thought you’d want to know.
