I had heard of lethal whites before, but didn't understand where they came from or how to prevent it from happening so I did some researching... I will DEFINITELY be testing my mare before I breed her. I was thinking of waiting a couple years, but am tossing around the idea of breeding her in the future since she's such an all-around dream (I'm biased, of course!). I had been looking into studs with homozygous tobiano patterns and it appears that many of them have already been tested for OLWS as well, so that's good. Also hoping I can find a stud who's homozygous for the black gene too, because a bay or black paint baby would be awesome. :) Thanks very much for your help and advice!
