    The neck hair is a ruff/mane, and the longer hair on the legs are feathers i think? im not sure what Australia calls them?

    i am sure you can get creative with the clippers, some hair-gel, and a few glasses of wine under yr belt.

    I saw a picture somewhere on FB - you can buy a lion mane wig for your cat.
    (Yes, some people have way too much time on their hands).

    I had a long coated GSD once who had a mane and big fluffy 'britches' on her hind legs. My Brian now has his winter coat which includes a feathery tail and a scruffy looking mane. Totally spoils his Tough Guy look

    The tasselly bits around some horses feet (especially Clydesdales) are "feathers"...

    Not sure about the dogs neck. Ruff, Scruff... don't know.

    Otherwise there might be something in the breed standard for Shelties or Rough Collies.

    Collie (rough)

    coat description...

    The coat should fit the outline of the dog and be very dense. The outer coat straight and harsh to the touch, the undercoat soft, furry and very close; so close as to almost hide the skin. The mane and frill should be very abundant, the mask or face, smooth, also the ears at the tips, but they should carry more hair towards the base; the fore-legs well feathered, the hind legs above the hocks profusely so, but smooth below. Hair on the tail very profuse.
    Think Lassie in full coat.

    There's a gauntlette if ever i saw one.
    competition perhaps?
    Sunday arvo: what BAC creates what 'Fashion Look' in your dog? lol
    clippers, check, hair gel check, straiteners? nah,perhaps a tad dangerous, curling irons should be fine though.
