I have no interest in testing for colour. I don't breed for it and kind of like to be surprised when the foal arrives.
Star has never sired a red foal so I suspect he is homozygous for black.
I do tell those who are interested in breeding to him that fact but also state I have never had him tested.
Not that I have a problem with others testing . I have turned down more than a few mares because their owners were interested in a black foal not how well their mares and Star would cross. Shalom

I don't go go for breeding/buying for color either. But, I do try to find out all I can genetically by testing, including their genotype. It's one of my curiosities.. More importantly, I find it necessary to know the status of each horse I breed as far as SCID, etc.
I have turned down a few who wanted to breed to Dream solely because he was black for the same reason you cite.

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

Druydess I test for SCID and and any other disorders as a responsible breeder I need to know those things.
If Star ever sired a stallion prospect then I would probably have him tested prior to sale. Might just increase his price. Shalom

I figured you did.

For anyone who's interested, there's a new testing source on the scene:
Animal Genetics
Equine Testing Service Cost

They are offering combined Combination (CA, LFS, SCID)
$125.00 US, which is a great price. Mine are already tested or clear by parentage, so I can't really take advantage of it, but maybe others can.

I used them once and their turnaround time was DAYS as opposed to weeks. Friends of mine had the same experience.

Hey Dru. Any updates?

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.
