Yeaa... I was replying to Iseul... And guess I made another mistake cuz i thought they were talking about the mare

What about following the base of the hair strands to where they meet in the neck or tail? I'm guessing it would likely belong to the same DNA that the area of the skin it attaches to does

That is exactly what I am going to be attempting to do when I pull the hair for the tests. Hopefully I'll be able to get enough to get accurate results. Her stripes are pretty defined on her neck, so hopefully that will help.

I would love to RIGHT NOW, but I just had a HUGE vet bill trying to save my daughter's Arabian mare. We failed. :( Gotta get everything else back on track before I can do it. :(

That is so sad. It really hurts when you lose one. I'm sorry to hear your bad news.

Thank you Celeste. She was VERY special to us and my daughter's best friend in the world. At 34 degrees, my daughter slept in the round pen with her, her last night. Breaks my heart to think about it.

Well the huge vet bill is a reassurance that at least you tried. You would feel bad forever if you had not. I have outlived several. My daughter is only 23, and she outlived 2 fine animals. (They were old when they came into her life.) One was a tiny, ancient shetland pony that we bought for $300 when my daughter was 4 years old. She had so much fun with that pony! She rode her, braided her hair, washed, combed, dressed her in clothes, and basically used her for a barbie doll. That pony was worth her weight in gold. It was so sad to lose her, but so nice that she was in our lives.

Everyone one that we have lost has been cherished. Her black Arabian mare, Satin, was her best friend and had been for 8 years (my daughter is 21). We fought it for 6 weeks, but unfortunately, there is no saving a 20 year old horse from a strangulating lipoma. :(
