This breeder had a stallion who carried the lethal white gene (I own him now, he's a gelding), he's sired some expensive babies (one for sold for $60,000) and she bred him to outside mares but she also bred him to her own mares. After the lethal white, I asked her why she was breeding the same mare back to him. She said all better bred overos carry the lethal white gene, her next foal from the same mare was a solid. By the way, the mare that had the lethal white was solid as well. She told me no tobianos carry that gene, only solids & overos. I don't know, just what I was told by someone who paid me to ride & show their horses, I wasn't going to argue.
