Note that the specific gene(s) for sooty haven't been identified yet and so can't be confirmed through testing. All the other genes mentioned have been identified and have genetic tests.
This almost exactly what I said to him, but he has been breeding horses much longer than me so what do I know. It is what irritates me about horse genetics in the uk, very few people us the correct terminology, so when they are very wrong and you point this out to them, they must no more because they have had horses/ponies longer than me.
