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!
