It's funny to me how OLWS is never treated the same as other diseases. I know the main argument is because of the fun color frame provides, but how is it any different then desiring the muscles of a HYPP horse or the elasticity and athleticism of a HERDA horse?
It's frustrating how little OLWS is in the limelight, and as a result, how little testing gets done. I swear it's like people don't even know about it where I live. I see foals advertised constantly by blatantly frame parents - both of them.
So those of you who wouldn't breed to a HERDA carrier - would you breed to a confirmed frame overo stallion with a non frame overo mare? No risk of an OLWS foal, but obviously the foal could be a "carrier".
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
