A frame positive horse can ONLY be heterozygous. Homozygous frame is lethal, hence the "lethal white syndrome" name. If you breed an N/O horse to an N/O horse you will have a 25% chance of an O/O foal..which is LWOS.

But yes, if the stallion has tested negative for frame, your mare's status won't matter. However, it is easier to test your mare and limit your options if she is N/O.

What's the difference between heterozygous and homozygous? I've had it explained to me before,but the explanation made no sense,so I don't think the person doing the explaining really knew for sure,lol..

Country, heter means they carry often times as a hidden or recessive gene, ex(2 brown eyed parents BbXBb have a blue eyed child BB) means both parents had a recessive gene for blue eyes in their genes.Also means the offspring may carry it or show it as well. Homo means a dominant gene also could be hidden but will show up in offspring. I have a bay mare who is homo for black. She has had a black foal from a black stallion and a black foal from a bay heter black stallion. could help maybe.

Heterozygous is one copy of a gene. Homozygous is two.

Ladytauren that is incorrect. A gene doesn't have to be dominant or recessive in order to be heterozygous of homozygous.

This is how I learned in college on determining genes of offspring

That is what that pink shows Nd, I didnt word it right but the link I added talks about the single and double gene

A homo will always be two capital letters

Not true....

.ee << homozygous red

.Ee << heterozygous for black and red.

.EE << homozygous for black

(ETA had to put the . Before the letters as the forum capitalizes the first letter... not cool)
