    Wait. So she's A/a, meaning she's bay, not brown?

    UC Davis doesn't test for Brown and brown is an extension or mutation (I forget which at the moment) of agouti. So she carries Agouti and my guess would be if I sent away to Pet DNA for brown, she would come back At/a since she only got brown from mom's side and not her sire who is Ee.

    Ah! Ok. Didn't realize that UC Davis doesn't test for brown when they test for agouti.

    Yeah, I probably won't even bother testing for Brown because she is such a classically brown horse on her non-white spots, like her dam. She's got all of the lighter points and carries agouti, so I think it would be a waste of money to even test for it.

    That's why I was like "Wait. What?!" when you said A/a.

    UC Davis actually tests for the lack of agouti or a.

    I see... so if they only find one copy of a, they know horse is A/a and if none, then A/A?
