He is a handsome fella! I agree with the others to have your mare tested first, but if she comes up negative for the gene, I'd say go for it. He's definitely some fiiiineee eye candy!

I will most definitely get her tested before doing anything. Also, I contacted the owner and he is negitave on all genetic diseases. So if my filly tested negitave as well, there would be no chance of a LW? Thanks so much! :)

I have been emailing the owners of the stud and asked: If my filly were negitave for carrying the lethal white disease, and the stud is negitave for the lethal white disease, what would the chance of the offspring having the lethal white disease? Her reply was : The foal would be either 50% N/0 and 50% N/N.

I am not sure what this means. Can somebody clarify for me? When I want to breed my filly I will ask my vet all these questions, but for know I will learn from y'all :).

The stud IS a carrier and is NOT negative for LWO/frame. He IS a carrier. If your mare is positive for frame DO NOT breed to a LWO/frame positive stud.

Ok, thanks. He's a carrier and if bred to another carrier there would be a chance of a LWO foal. I found a very helpful site with all the needed info.


LWO - Lethal White Overo Testing

I am going to send in for the testing and I will let you know what my filly is!

Basically what the owner said is her stud which you can tell by pattern is frame and has a 50% chance of passing frame to the colt. And if your mare is frame as well you have a 25% chance of that foal inheriting frame from both parents. Homozygous (to copies of frame from both parents) for frame inherited in a foal =100% death. Heterozygous (one copy) carried in a horse is not deadly but when frame is bred to frame you can end up with frame inherited from both parents getting a lethal foal and which will die shortly after.

Frame Overo is the Lethal White gene, if your mare and the stallion are both Frame Overos, you have a 25% chance of a Lethal White foal. LWO - Lethal White Overo Testing

A foal born with LWO has an incomplete digestive system and dies very painfully, usually within the first 72 hrs. I would want both horses tested before I would breed either one of them.

I currently have a frame mare who is in foal to a frame stallion, the breeding was done by the mare's previous owner, and I am waiting to find out if we dodge the bullet or have to put the foal down when it's born. Not a happy waiting situation.

Also, what is your mare's HYPP status? Does she have any lines to Impressive? Are you close to the stallion because I see he doesn't offer shipped semen.

Does anybody else think he's a bit bum high? I dunno maybe he's okay?

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

You will never find a horse that has 100% perfect conformation...there will always be something that isn't absolutely on par according to the standards. A horse that is slightly butt high is just a minor "fault" that shouldn't make or break his worth. There are other conformational faults (particularly of the legs) that merit more consideration....unless the horse is so obviously butt high that he looks like he's perpetually walking down the side of a mountain, it's really not worth fretting over.
