    Wow, that's a very comprehensive list!!! It's good that it's there for reference though! Does the breeder/seller have to by law tell a potential buyer if a horse carries CA? Or does the buyer have to research and test for it? It looks like a nasty disease!

    That is actually a very minor list compared to what's been tested... People just aren't posting results.
    There isn't any laws, so it's up to the buyer or breeder. It's getting to the point where a sale is based on a CA/SCID test.
    I wouldn't breed to a stallion that wasn't tested for CA. I'd have to really consider before I thought about breeding to a CA Carrier stallion.
    It's ugly, but managable in knowledagable hands.
    If you become familiar enough with the list you can catch carriers by eye, but because it's so vast, I would definitely test.

    Sounds like a plan! Just wait a few years. I'm downsizing until I get my feet back under myself and focusing on my boys, then I'll find the mares for them.
    Although, I am SUPER exicted for one baby this year! Darn may, so far away... lol

    When it comes to CA can you see if a foal will have it as soon as they're born? Or does it show up later?

    Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) is not usually apparent at birth, but begins to be noticeable a few weeks after. Lavender foal syndrome is usually apparent at birth.

    So a breeder who hides their horses status, wouldn't get to lie/hide it for long then?


    How hard is it to say hey, one of my horses ancestors had it! I should check for it just in case!

    Much better than running around breeding to everything only to find out later your foal(s) have to be put down because you refused to test for it??
