This should be an excuse for some university to do some testing on donkeys and genetics

We are working with Pet DNA of AZ on donkey color coat testing. It is time consuming and expensive. Thus far we have found several things interesting. Ivory is not horse cream. Brown in donkeys is not located on the same loci as in horses. Donkeys test negative for horse Frame (LWO). Black and red test out the same. We have also located pangare. However, we need much more funding in order to continue research into testing.

Can owners send in samples there like at UC Davis? How much would the test cost?
