Horse Testing - Equine Genetic Testing <<< Information is on there. Basically you pull hair, fill out the form and send in the hair, form and fee and they do the testing.

OP if the mare is APHA registered and you have her name, I can look her up in APHA plus for you. This would be a fast indicator if the mares pedigree contains frame overos, and would give you some evidence that she is a likely carrier. It won't rule out frame completely if the pedigree only shows tobianos.

I would put it to her this way: A $25 test, to negate the 25% chance of a dead foal. Funny how those numbers seem made to be together.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I know what you mean exactly *sigh* I'm trying to change this situation... my cousin isn't stupid just very naive and believes what the last owner told her... very frustrating for me because I do care about my cousin and I know she would be devastated if this happened again. Now that I have some proof to show her, she should change her mind or at least have the test done. She would never intentionally breed 2 LW+ horses, but she lacks the knowledge and that's why I'm trying to educate her. I know once she sees how serious it is that she will change her mind. Its just convincing her. Thanks everyone!

Eta: the first foal was a complete accident btw and the paddock has been secured since then. Surprisingly he didn't escape, the mare broke in.

I just asked and she is double registered. I'm trying to get the name but as soon as I mentioned the overo face markings and LW she changed the subject to saddles...

Here we go - share these with her. These horses have all been confirmed to have frame (lethal white overo) by genetic testing.
