Excited... and Nervous...

I finally bit the bullet and ordered the DNA test kits from the APHA the other day. I will be testing both my mares for HERDA, HYPP, GBED, and OLWS. I will also be sending in separate samples for PSSM1, as the APHA panel does not cover it. That's the part I'm nervous about.

The part that's exciting is that I also ordered the color test panel! Yay. This test will cover red factor, agouti, cream, pearl, champagne, dun, silver, gray, tobiano, OLWS, Sabino1, and SW1, 2 & 3. My mares aren't canidates for many of these, but it's cheaper to do this than order separately and I think they list the results on the registration papers, which is pretty cool. :p

Anyway, wish me all negatives on the genetic disorder panel!

Does anybody want to see pictures so they can try to guess before the results come in?

Well, I've spent the last 45 minutes trying to figure out how to get pictures on here from my kindle. I give up. You'll have to check them out on my facebook:

If anybody has the time to post them here, I'd be grateful.

And you need to know that Nova has 1 blue eye. Oakley does not have any blue eyes. :)

I think Nova will come back black (E_ aa), frame N/O, tobiano To_, possibly sabino, and negative for everything else.

For Oakley, I'm thinking bay, possibly brown, but that color panel won't differentiate (E_ A_), tobiano To_, and possibly sabino. Negative for everything else.

I am leaning more towards splash on Nova. Both are obviously tobianos though.

I wouldn't be surprised on splash on either of them with both having crooked bottom heavy blazes.

Just to be different I am going to say homozygous tobiano for Nova, no frame. Agree with black.

Oakley tobi with splash ;) and agree bay.
