Anyone Know How to Read Genetic Test Results for Colour?

Hello All,

I realize I've posted a lot in the last few days, but I suppose I have more questions than I thought and researching on the internet has done me no good, so I apologize for being so hyperactive. I was posting about the colour of my horse, Lilly, in another thread and have thought about getting her genetically tested to see what markers she carries; the only thing is, I wouldn't know how to read the darn thing if I did order it. I have a copy of her sire's genetic test below. I've blacked out the names and numbers as it's not for my own horse. The only thing I recognize is Aa. Does anyone know what the rest of it means?

Wow, I have no idea about that... that's a really old report ('95).

I got my horse tested for champagne earlier this year out of curiosity. Here's what UC Davis's reports look like now:

Ok good, so they don't look like that anymore. Excellent. I can't imagine why they would have changed their format. Thanks for the info!

Is it possible that the test is a parentage verification or stallion listing type and not for color or disease markers?

You could be absolutely right, I honestly don't know. I assumed it was for colour, but we received this 12 years ago after breeding my mare and I was just a teenager, so perhaps I assumed incorrectly.
