If she tested through a uni lab, then she didn't test for a dominant agouti gene, but rather the lack of a recessive one.

The generic agouti test seeks the recessive "a" allele. If they find two, then the horse is not carrying agouti, and is "a/a". If they find one, they get a result along the lines of "a/_", and if they don't find any, they get a "_/_". The labs then fill in the blanks with a dominant gene - "A". They haven't detected a dominant gene, just a lack of the recessive one. So while they can tell how many dominant genes are there through elimination, they can't tell what dominant gene it is.

Pet DNA of Arizona is a private lab. They are the lab that has isolated the gene responsible for brown, and are the only lab that tests for the dominant allele on the agouti locus.

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.

Agouti - Horse Coat Color
Here's the place she got the test from, I'm in the process of sending my grullas DNA in to see if he has a red or not. I see what you mean about how it just says testing for the dominant, I would imagine your right in that they assumed it would be bay. This stuff is all so complicated! Ill stick to my duns and grullas ;) they're easier!

Until you get a brown dun - one that looks bay dun in summer, and grulla in winter.... *cackle*

I would LOVE to get her tested and find out as well. Thanks for your input, Chiila. I like seeing what you have to say about these types of things.

Will be looking into the testing soon, lord willing.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Here is the link to the PetDNA lab. They test only for brown and aqouti status (homozygous/heterozygous), nothing else. Equine DNA Testing Lab | Pet DNA Services AZ

Subscribing--I must know what the test results are--im thinkin 'A' not 'At', and this mare is definitely NOT 'A+'

She has the light muzzle.. not really, but is kinda visable, but not light in the flank, belly, insides of legs, or girth/armpit area..

I do love her bright amazing color.. just sayin' ill come pick her up if you're disappointed in the results.

IMO she will test bay instead of brown. If you test her let us know! :)
