    I'm not sure you know what OLWS is--do you?

    Like NdAppy, I'm not buying that she's negative. There was recently another poster on here who had a mare that the previous owners had told her tested negative, though she looked like a positive. She bred her to her positive stallion, and had a lethal white foal which, of course, had to be euthanized. You cannot trust what people say, and you cannot trust lab results unless they are from a reliable, reputable institution.

    I kno what it is... And I highly doubt me get a lethal one since the stud is negative ! If I do I can't change it I was told when I tested them they were negative..

    Where did you have them tested?

    In all honesty I would be demanding a retest at their cost if they said your mare was negative...

    Not all overos are positive ...

    All frame overos are. And your mare is a frame overo.

    Your mare's pattern is the definition of Frame Overo. There is no way she's negative. Where did you have the test done?

    Your mare displays classic signs of frame overo. She is positive for frame/OLWS.

    I agree retest (actually I wouldn't have bothered testing in the first place, it's pretty obvious). So what were the rest of the test results? That info would give a much better idea what color a foal would likely be!

    Yes, PLEASE be careful who you breed to that mare. A lethal white foal is a horrible tragedy!! If they are born alive, they suffer terribly. Nothing like waiting all through a pregnancy only to have that happen. Test EVERYTHING that comes close to that mare, IMO.
