Excited... and Nervous...
I finally bit the bullet and ordered the DNA test kits from the APHA the other day. I will be testing both my mares for HERDA, HYPP, GBED, and OLWS. I will also be sending in separate samples for PSSM1, as the APHA panel does not cover it. That's the part I'm nervous about.

The part that's exciting is that I also ordered the color test panel! Yay. This test will cover red factor, agouti, cream, pearl, champagne, dun, silver, gray, tobiano, OLWS, Sabino1, and SW1, 2 & 3. My mares aren't canidates for many of these, but it's cheaper to do this than order separately and I think they list the results on the registration papers, which is pretty cool. :p

Anyway, wish me all negatives on the genetic disorder panel!

Does anybody want to see pictures so they can try to guess before the results come in? :D

I'd love to see pictures and take a guess :-)

Yes, post pics. Please.

Well, I've spent the last 45 minutes trying to figure out how to get pictures on here from my kindle. I give up. You'll have to check them out on my facebook:

If anybody has the time to post them here, I'd be grateful.

And you need to know that Nova has 1 blue eye. Oakley does not have any blue eyes. :)

I think Nova will come back black (E_ aa), frame N/O, tobiano To_, possibly sabino, and negative for everything else.

For Oakley, I'm thinking bay, possibly brown, but that color panel won't differentiate (E_ A_), tobiano To_, and possibly sabino. Negative for everything else.

I am leaning more towards splash on Nova. Both are obviously tobianos though.

Tryst 07-03-2013 11:31 PM

I wouldn't be surprised on splash on either of them with both having crooked bottom heavy blazes.

Just to be different I am going to say homozygous tobiano for Nova, no frame. Agree with black.

Oakley tobi with splash ;) and agree bay.
