    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 couldnt agree more.

    LMAO ok your knowledge is so great then you should have the "knowledge" to come up with the color of a perspective foal.

    In school for an equine surgeon? So you've already graduated from vet school, huh? I really admire people who go on for specialty training like that. I mean, that's a LOT of school, a lot of money, and a lot of time. Kudos to you! You must be a superwoman, too, to have time with training, rotations, studying, patient treatment, breeding, AND web forums!

    It's also great that you've had your stud tested and he's come out negative. Because, as you know since you're a veterinarian, many solid-looking horses actually carry the lethal white gene.

    As a veterinarian, you also realize that just because your mare had a healthy foal in the past, that does not mean she cannot produce a lethal white foal. Of course you obviously know that every time she's bred to another carrier, she has a 25% chance of producing a lethal white baby!

    Do you have any advice for prospective vet students? I'm going to be applying to vet school very soon, and I've been working on my essays. It's nice to see that spelling and grammar won't be highly selected for....I can breathe a sigh of relief there!
