I know...I want to scream it from the roof top so everyone knows. I also heard that AQHA is offering a genetic disorders package for just $85 (official announcement hopefully next week)

Now this is great progress, I cannot wait for the day that horse's papers include their genetic color typing and status of genetic disorders.

That would be a lovely advancement. They would then have to call a horse what it is and not just what they feel like!

Is it bad that that was my first thought? Then I thought of CCH having to update her site. Hahaha.

Pulled hairs out this morning. That's just no fun.

First I have to wrangle the hair and spend all kinds of time "deciding" a. Where it will hurt the least and b. Where a little bald spot, or funky new hairs growing in won't show.

Of course as soon as I get a little chunk wrapped around my finger is the minute the follicles decide there is no way in heck they are going to be ripped out. Pulling only results in a horse acting as though he will fall on top of me because *obviously* my hulk hands are certainly capable of making this a near death experience.
So now, fingers cut up a little & still no hair, I pull out the big guns - a $0.79 half chewed (gee thanks puppy) comb. The hairs practically jump out at the sight of the pink mangled monstrosity. Now my horse is looking at me with welled up eyes, and I'm sure he said something about death-row inmates getting a last meal & better treatment.

I'm sure it will be a day or two, plus some butt scratches and several treats before all is forgiven.

I put the package in the mail today and USPS claims it will be there by Tuesday, so I am very very anxiously awaiting results. This is more exciting than Christmas!!

I have just decided that if I still owned my first solid paint, I would be testing her for all sorts of color patterns. As looking back at her pedigree this morning, I found that she has several frame overos on her sire's side and I believe other "overo" patterns on her dam's side (from looking at what pictures were available on allbreed). So, the white she did have could have been frame hiding, and could have had other patterns hiding with it.

I find color and genetic testing very interesting. I have always enjoyed biology, and there is still so much to learn :)

Sunny - the horse in your avatar - I bet he tests positive for splash...

He could have splash, but probably more likely sabino (he's a purebred arab and has produced a couple purebred pintos). Must tell my mom to pull his mane and test it LOL! She is already planning on testing the red factor of one of her mares, so what is one more? Hehehe

I bet he has both *whistles* The high whites in the front just always make me think splash... his stripe is very sabino though.

What does a horse that carries splash look like?

Before I breed my mare (in whatever century I get around to that!), I was going to send in some hairs to see if she's homozygous for tobiano, so I could breed her to a non-spotted stud, get a pinto foal, and register the baby SSHBEA. (The selection of non-pinto TWH/Racking stallions is worlds better...) Maybe I should test her for splash too... But I don't know if that would be stupid, since I don't know what horses with even a chance of carrying "hidden splash" look like...

Now that I sound like a proper idiot, here's my mare. What kind of overos could she be hiding...

Here's her sire... He looks splashy. I think.

She has splash IMO. And not hidden either lol. That muzzle screams splash to me - splash likes bottom heavy face white. She probably has sabino too, and I would definitely test her for frame if you are planning to breed her.
