    Embryonic lethal means that the fetus dies as an embryo.

    I think it' pretty easy to assume that's what it means (what NdAppy said) by just looking at the context. I had never heard that before and I assumed that's what it meant.

    Well I didn't really understand 100% what it meant either.

    SW1 can and is homozygous. SW2 and SW3 are thought at this time to be embryonic lethal.

    This is very true my friend who owns Spooks Gotta Whiz, tests him and his foals for this with every genetic panel testing.

    I guess I should have asked my question differently. I assumed the embryonic lethal meant the fetus dies as an embryo, what I'd like to know is why and if there's a good website someone can refer me to in order to read up on it?
