    If you get results back for your horse and it's 'AA', 'AAt', or 'Aa' your horse is bay. 'AtAt' or 'Ata' is brown. 'aa' is no agouti. Confusing, I know.
    It's worth noting that PetDNA is the only lab that currently tests for brown. Others, like UC Davis, don't differentiate between A and At in their agouti tests.
