I'm not sure if that is correct, but that is what I call them.

Here's the terms that my family uses... maybe a groomer will have proper terms

1) Feathers... well this is the same...
2) Bloomers hair around the bum... humm this one would be butt fur or butt fringe
3) Foot hair - slippers
4) Chest hair- my mom calls it a beard on her springers... I havn't really called it anything yep since Maverick has very boring fur there

Feathers = Feathers I.e Long hair down inside's of front legs
Bloomers hair around rear end = Trousers
Foot Hair = Slippers
Chest Hair = Shirt Front
Hair down lower sides of body =Skirtings

Hope that helps you all?? VBG!!

Other bits are the actual ear flaps themselves are called the "Leathers" and the fringing is often referred to as "Ear Feathering"....
