Yeah, I know OLWS has to be homozygous to be lethal. The stallion I plan on breeding to is advertised as being N/N as well and I have a copy of his test, but it's so easy with computers to alter something that it just gives me that extra peace of mind knowing she is N/N. The breeder seems reputable and she has the stud's OLWS status advertised everywhere, so the chances that she is being dishonest are quite slim, and if she was being dishonest, I think it would be difficult to defend falsely advertising, but I like knowing for myself 100% that there isn't a chance. Perhaps I'm just overly cautious or suspicious of people! Lol.
Colour is only secondary for me. The stallion is heterozygous for Tobiano, so I do have a chance of getting a solid foal, but what really drew me to him was his extremely calm personality, conformation and movement. I've seen what he's thrown and he seems to have the traits I am looking for that I think would complement my mare nicely. My reason for wanting to breed to a Paint are to hopefully get a spotted horse, but if not, I can still register the foal as Breeding Stock Pinto, just like my mare currently is. I was just hoping she carried SOME Paint markers and it was more for fun that I wanted to find out. If I don't get a spotted baby, I'm perfectly ok with that too.
