Thanks good to know, would I need to know the red factor also? I'm looking at the uc davis site to see all I would need to get her tested. Figure for the price it would be nice to know even if I don't breed her. If there is no way to get a grullo then I'd really like a bay or chestnut tobiano. I've always wanted a pinto, actually when I was horse shopping I was looking for a tobiano, but ended up with Bella, a bay with just a star, would of thought I'd at least get something with socks lol
ETA:I saw on one of the test you need to send 20-30 mane hairs with root attached but it didn't say that for the agouti or red testing. Do you know if that is what is needed for that test as well?
