Prick Ears or Standard Aussie Ears?

My beautiful toy Aussie has prick ears, which I know is not breed standard, but I Love them!! My mother owns my dogs mother which is her pet, she also has prick ears, I think she's incredibly gorgeous, she's a black tri. I'm just wondering what people prefer and what they think about both ear sets because EVERYONE we know prefers the prick ears (we also have two toy Aussies with regular ears) they always want the puppies we produce that have prick ears. My beautiful girl is going to have pups for the first time with a red tri with regular ears, I'm hoping for prick eared babies!

    Generally I prefer Aussies with rose ears and Border Collies with pricked. Ear set is pretty far down the list of Important Things To Consider when breeding or picking a puppy. I would be most concerned with temperament, balanced structure, drive and health.

    A lot of breeders tape prick eared pups to get the rose ear. I however love prick ears!
