DNA testing

Does anyone know of a place that does DNA testing, specifically on what type/breed of horse you have?

Or if they have to come in or you can send in samples?

I didnt know where to put this so I put it here and horse talk.

Thanks in advance!

There is not one available. And just like the dog test is would be a waste of time and money. Those types of tests are not reliable enough to even think about doing.

They do them on cows ect you really don't think they are worth the time or are reliable? Hmmm I always thought there was a way to actuallly figure out what kind of breed they are, maybe not?

No they are not reliable. I don't know of one for cows, but I know for a fact that dogs are tested and test as breeds that they can't possibly be (well bred papered dogs with obviously known breeding testing as completely different breeds).

Cows are different. They are DNA checked much more often an with a much larger database due to trying to return lost cattle. Horses aren't DNA checked very often at all and therefore there just isn't enough lineage samples to match it up to.
